Sedum – Frosted Fire Stonecrop
A beauty that can be used in place of small shrubs
A fantastic, low-care Sedum, Frosted Fire brings bright green foliage with creamy yellow edges and large, rosy pink flowers. Its huge flowers cover the foliage in late summer and fall. The plants mature to beautiful mounds that can be substituted for small shrubs in the landscape. Butterflies and other pollinators always visit its nectar rich blossoms. Its flowers dry on the shrub and persist throughout winter. At 12-15″ tall, it makes a great ground cover for sunny, dry spaces. Like all Sedums, Frosted Fire thrives on neglect, showing its best colors when grown in dry areas in full sun. A rare and limited selection.
Being versatile, carefree, and very easy to grow, Sedums are extremely popular. Sedum is ideal for covering slopes, or for dry, sunny areas. Sedums work beautifully with other succulents in rock gardens, troughs or patio containers. They tolerate high heat, are extremely drought-tolerant and many are evergreen. Their thick, succulent leaves store water, giving them low water needs.
Most Sedums prefer sunny locations that are well drained Sedums thrive in sandy to gravelly soil with average fertility. Sedums grown in rich soils or too much shade will become weak, floppy plants. Sedums are not bothered by pests or diseases. Their seed heads provide wonderful winter interest and food for birds. Remove old growth in spring.
