Sedum tetractinum


Chinese Stonecrop

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.485.490


A carpeting variety of Stonecrop, especially useful in hot sunny sites. The small rounded deep-green leaves form a spreading mat, with tiny yellow star-shaped flowers appearing in summer. The leaves turn a rich reddish-bronze shade in winter. Useful as a lawn substitute for small to medium-sized areas, also between flagstones or in the rock garden. Plants will tolerate poor soil so long as drainage is good. Easily propagated by breaking off pieces and sticking them in the ground in mid spring. Tolerates occasional to light foot traffic. Evergreen.
