Sedum sarmentosum

Stringy Stonecrop, Star Sedum, Graveyard Moss

This low growing perennial sedum is fast–almost too fast. It comes out early, blooms early, and is happy to be pinched back or sheared if you rather not have it bloom. It is very hardy, drought tolerant and can be propagated by throwing it around. Really it’s that easy! It will grow wherever it touches the ground. Last year I was so happy it was thriving I moved it to many places—this year I am backing off a bit and even editing some out as I have previously posted I don’t like the faded summer color, also it does get very long and stringy. If you are a new gardener, don’t hesitate to use it as a ground cover in between rocks and stepping stones. It is easily propagated but not invasive. USDA Zones 3 to 8.
