Often people who plant Sedum become addicted to their spectacular foliage with so many different sized, shaped, and colored leaves and return to try additional varieties in their gardens.

05/31/2018 I ordered the sedum stonecrop lemon ball and only 1 plant didn’t survive the trip. Most were in great shape, a few are looking a bit “peaked” but are perking up. Most are hardy and in great shape. Very bright and pretty color.
