Forms a tight green mat and tolerates dry conditions. Good for the rock garden. Sulphur-yellow flowers appear between June and July.
Sedums are fleshy-leaved, succulent perennials are not just for rock gardens. They are tough and vigorous but not invasive, and outlast most herbaceous plants each fall. Many provide winter interest. They are drought tolerant and have clustered, starry flowers that can be quite showy. Best in full sun.
