Sedum Lineare ‘Sea Urchin’

Sea Urchin Sedum

This low-growing sedum is lovely!  It has tiny, narrow, variegated leaves that are mint-green with a creamy white edge. During the summer the bright yellow star-shaped flowers that bloom above the foliage are an added bonus. I have had this in my garden for three years and it has been easy to grow–in  well-drained soils and full sun to part shade. It is happy to take all the heat and drought stress that comes with a Stillwater summer. I have found it to be really reliable but it is said to be winter hardy only to USDA Zone 6a.  Oklahoma is so harsh I usually try plants that can survive in USDA zone 3-4, even though we are USDA Zone 7a!
