A fast growing evergreen succulent with attractive white star-shaped flowers from June to August.  Plants form a creeping mat of green leaves which tolerate light foot traffic. Good in rockeries and gravel gardens, and as ground cover for hot sites with poor soils.

This Sedum prefers a warm sunny spot and well-drained soil.  Plants tolerate drought.

Pack of approx 200 small seeds.  Sow anytime, typically spring to autumn.  Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.

Hardiness Hardy evergreen succulent perennial
Flowers June to August
Height A low growing plant, about 6cm in height
Spread 30-50cm
Conditions  Sun to part shade and well-drained soil
Sow Sow anytime, typically spring to autumn in a tray of moist seed compost.  Mix these small seeds in sand and spread evenly over the top of the compost.  Or press the seeds lightly into the surface of the compost.  Do not exclude light, which is needed for germination.  Keep at 15-21C.  Germination takes 2-4 weeks.  Pot on when seedlings are big enough to handle and plant into the garden when frost free.
Grow Plants grow quickly into an evergreen mat which needs little maintenance.  They can be trimmed in early spring (at least two months before flowering) to encourage strong plants.  Stem cuttings take easily in spring and summer break off pieces and plant directly into the ground or into pots.
