- Plant: The herb is perennial and reaches stature heights between 10 and 20 cm (4 and 8 in).
- Leaves: The blue-green and tapered leaves are similar to those of typical succulents. It is a typical stonecrop plant in which the leaves are typical water reservoirs.
- Flowering: The yellow flowers are united in an umbelliferous inflorescence. Each inflorescence can contain up to 50 individual flowers. Every single flower is hermaphrodite.
- Ripeness: The plant produces typical follicle fruits, meaning that the fruit contains several single seeds.
👉How to care :
Soil: No matter what type of stonecrop plant you buy you should plant it in well drained soil. Heavy wet soil is sure to rot both tall and creeping sedums alike. Their fondness for well-drained soil makes sedum plants great for raised beds, hillside slopes, sandy soil, rock gardens, crevice gardens, containers, and green roofs.
Sunshine: Most sedums like full or part sun (5 or more hours of direct sun per day). A few stonecrop species such as Sedum ternatum are woodland plants that like to grow on top of rocks in dappled shade. And some of the highly variegated sedums (like S. alboroseum ‘Lemonade’) with pale green, yellow and white foliage need dappled sunlight to prevent sunburn
Watering: Water weekly when the plant is actively growing.
