FAQ

Sedums are drought-tolerant plants and generally require watering only when the soil is completely dry. Water deeply, allowing the water to penetrate the root zone, and then allow the soil to dry out before watering again. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot.

Yes, Sedums are well-suited for container gardening. Choose a container with drainage holes and use a well-draining potting mix. Place the container in a sunny location and water the Sedums as needed.

Sedums generally require minimal pruning. However, you can trim back leggy growth in the spring to promote bushier growth. Deadheading spent flowers can also encourage more blooms. Cut back any damaged or diseased parts of the plant as needed.

Sedums are relatively pest-resistant, but they can occasionally be affected by aphids, mealybugs, or slugs. Monitor your plants regularly and address any pest issues promptly. Use insecticidal soap or neem oil for small infestations, or handpick slugs. Encouraging beneficial insects, such as ladybugs, can also help control pests.

Yes, many Sedum varieties can be grown indoors as houseplants. Choose compact varieties that can tolerate lower light conditions. Place them near a sunny window or provide artificial light. Use well-draining soil and water the plants sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings.

Most Sedums are cold-hardy and can survive winter temperatures. However, some tender varieties may need protection in colder climates. Mulch around the base of the plants in late fall to provide insulation. In extremely cold regions, you can also consider covering the plants with a frost cloth or moving potted Sedums indoors.

Sedums can be easily propagated through stem cuttings or division. Take stem cuttings in spring or early summer, strip the lower leaves, and place them in well-draining soil or water until roots develop. Dividing established plants can be done in spring by separating the clumps into smaller sections and replanting them.

Sedums are generally deer-resistant due to their succulent leaves, which are not as palatable to deer. However, hungry deer may still nibble on Sedums during food shortages or if other preferred food sources are scarce.

Yes, many Sedum varieties make excellent ground covers. Their low-growing and spreading habit allows them to fill in large areas. Plant them in well-draining soil, and they will form a dense mat, suppressing weeds and adding visual interest to the landscape.

Sedums are not heavy feeders and can generally thrive without frequent fertilization. However, you can apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the spring to provide some nutrients. Avoid overfertilizing, as it can lead to excessive foliage growth with fewer flowers.

Great plants and great customer serviceI am very pleased with the customer service provided. My plants got delivered to a wrong address (by my mistake) and I wasn't able to get them back. I was sure that I lost my $200 worth of plants, but Gretchen from customer service was absolutely amazing and replaced my order. I was very impressed as I did not expect this to happen at all.
Thank you very much! I will order again!
