Welcome to the Sedum Forum, a genus of close to 600 species of perennial succulents.

Most are low-growing, with a variety of textures and leaf colors, as well as attractive blossoms. Their generally compact habit make them well suited to rock gardens and container culture. Most sedum root readily from a broken stem. Most do well in poor soil, in hot sunny exposures, requiring little water. Commonly known as stonecrop. Join the conversation in the Chat Thread and other information filled threads. Post your photos and share in the fun of learning about these great plants.

Talking about Sedum (Sedum confusum), Cruddy wrote:

This plant is pretty amazing. It grows. I have a couple of colonies of this plant all from one little 2-leaved stem I had about 2 years ago. It is heat tolerant and is able to survive drought, full sun, and consistent 100-plus degree temperatures. Where I live, it flowers pretty much whenever it wants to, but mainly in the early and late spring. It attracts hover flies, butterflies, and jumping spiders. This is the sedum that they must be talking about when they say you can just throw it on some dirt and it will grow because that's what this one is capable of doing.

Talking about Stonecrop (Sedum SunSparkler® Lime Twister), valleylynn wrote:

This plant is a sport of Sedum Sunsparkler Lime Zinger. I'm happy to say that it is a very stable sport. Tough plant for full sun. It occasionally grows a sprig of cream colored foliage that only adds interest to an already interesting sedum.

Today, 11-23-14 found a green stem growing. Pulled and potted to see whether it turns out to be the NOID one I bought that looks like Missy, only green.

Talking about Stonecrop (Sedum SunSparkler® Dazzleberry), ssgardener wrote:

Plenty of sedums can handle part shade, but this particular sedum seems to do best in full sun. I have one that receives a few hours of direct sun and also a few hours of dappled sun, and it's struggling. I've found that Angelina, Blue Spruce, and Autumn Joy varieties do just fine in the shade.

I've seen Dazzleberry in full sun where it has a much prettier growth habit, although the color is still a nice purple in part shade. I think mine will need to get moved next year!

Talking about Stonecrop (Sedum SunSparkler® Blue Pearl), valleylynn wrote:

Sedum SunSparkler® 'Blue Pearl' is the tallest Sedum or Hylotelephium I have. It topped out at 23 inches, including the flower heads, this year. It adds quite a presence in the beds with its height and color. 'Blue Pearl' has a somewhat branching habit and makes a nice full display, with strong upright stems that do not need support. It is later to bloom for me, and is just now showing open flowers.
When it first emerges from dormancy the leaves are a smoky blue/green color with blue/purple edges. As the season progresses, the leaves go through some wonderful color changes, never losing that great blue cast that overlies the other colors. It has interesting cup-shaped, almost round, leaves.
