Sedum sarmentosum

6 String sedum June 6

Stringy Stonecrop, Gold Moss Stonecrop, Graveyard Moss

This perennial flowering plant is native to East Asia and Southeast Asia. I like it in my garden because it is a workhorse while other things are filling in. It spreads VERY easily, but it’s shallow-rooted and easy to pull up and it does not stand a chance to escape in our native landscape. It seems to prefer sun but is fine with half a day of shade. It is very drought tolerant. you can easily control it as a border by pulling some up and breaking it off, actually if your don’t keep it in check it will cover other plants. In the winter it dies back to nothing but then emerges in early spring. USDA Zones 3 to 8.
