Sedum (Sedum Acre) - Start Sedum Acre seeds to grow an excellent performing ground cover commonly known as Stonecrop. Yellow Stonecrop ground cover plants form a brilliant, intense golden yellow carpet that will rapidly spread and fill in, giving you ground cover over a large area in a very short time. It is a perennial plant native to Europe but also naturalized in North America.
Yellow Sedum is so well-known and used that it has many common names: Goldmoss Stonecrop, Goldmoss Sedum, or Golden Carpet Stonecrop.

How to grow
How To Grow Sedum Acre From Seed: Sedum Acre seeds can be sown indoors or directly outdoors. Indoor sowing can be done 6 - 8 weeks before last frost date. Use small pots or flats and sterile starter mix. Pre-moisten the starter mix and sow 5 - 7 Stonecrop seeds per container. The Sedum seeds are exceptionally small, so only press the ground cover seed into the moistened soil, and do not cover the seed. Keep the seeds moist but not saturated until they germinate.
For outdoor sowing, wait until garden soil temperatures are 70F. Select a site with well-draining soil. If necessary amend soil with organic matter. Loosen the top 1 - 2 inches of soil, remove any weeds, and gently broadcast the Sedum ground cover seeds over the soil. Lightly press the seeds into the soil, and keep the seed continuously moist until germination.
