Lemon Ball Stonecrop {25 Pots - 3 1/2 in.}

Fresh, vivid, vibrant chartreuse foliage appears like a small explosion in your garden with this hardy creeper. Lemon Ball is a terrific, semi-evergreen, low groundcover for any sunny area with poor or dry soil. The needlelike-foliage forms bright citrusy whorls around its central stem.

It is similar to Sedum 'Angelina' yet its foliage is brighter and fuller and it leans toward lemon-lime shades where Angelina tends toward orange tints. Like a miniature burning bush, it remains in tidy mounds with its tips turning bronze in winter.

A rapid growth rate makes Lemon Ball perfect in summer pots and planters where it will quickly spill over the sides of the container. Drought resistant, tolerant of most soil types and even willing to put up with some shade (unusual for Sedums), this plant offers such surprising color that gardeners can't resist sprinkling it throughout their landscapes in areas that lack pizzazz.

Gardener Tips
You will absolutely love placing Lemon Ball in conjunction with Black Mondo Grass as an edging. The darkness of the Black Mondo, paired with the bright, sunny Sedum, gives a "day and night" feeling that is simply irresistible.

Another option is pairing it with Black Scallop Ajuga which offers a similar (but lower growing) affect.
General information about Sedum (Stonecrop):
If you have naked space requiring glorious green coverage, the variety of Sedums we offer will surely fit the bill. With their thick, succulent foliage and incredibly hardy nature as well as varied display of color, Sedum, often called Stonecrop, make up one of American gardener’s most prized perennial groundcovers.

A snap to grow, low-maintenance, deer and rabbit resistant, salt-tolerant, and adaptable to just about any soil condition (though they favor well-drained soil), Sedums spread moderately fast without becoming aggressive. Sedums require no care to thrive in a wide variety of settings and due to their thick, succulent, water-storing leaves, sedums define drought tolerance - refusing to wilt in the heat.

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. Another delightful feature about sedum is that both foliage and blooms shift shades during the season. Leaves begin from sage to peridot and blush with lavender, russet, and copper over the season. The flower clusters’ colors tend to deepen or soften as they age blooming longer and later than most groundcovers, up until frost.

The taller varieties, such as Autumn Joy, make lovely cut flowers that last for weeks. While lower-growing, ornamental varieties quickly creep around rocks in gardens blanketing the soil with their lush greens, taller varieties fill mid-height gaps in gardens with lovely texture and color.

Later in season, the taller varieties yield their seed heads to provide excellent food and attraction for birds. From rock gardens, rooftops, edgings, accents, around birdbaths, and in mass plantings, the possibilities for planting are endless.

Willing to adapt to moist conditions and a favorite of butterflies, Sedums are also lovely choices to skirt a water feature with a tropical feel. Simply put, if you’ve never tried a Sedum, you are missing out on an incredibly beautiful, easy-to-grow, garden delight.

Things to Note
Sedums' tolerance of cold makes them popular in northern zones.

Gardener Tips
Sedums are one of the easiest perennials to divide by simply digging straight down into the plant’s center, thereby dividing it in half or even quarters (depending on size), and pulling up sections to plant elsewhere. This makes them a wonderful option for including in a variety of settings, as well as an economic option because they will quickly fill in new areas of a garden.

Arrived in fair condition. Most plant sort of squashed with stem broken off. Some barely any left. All planted will see in spring how they do.

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.

The plants arrived on the date specified but in poor condition. 5 were broken or smashed. I called and was given credit for the 5 plants but the remaining ones were planted right away and are struggling. I’m hopeful that they will rebound.

21 out of 24 plants arrived in superb condition. The other three were just a bit thin and spindly, but they're recovering nicely.
Outstanding!
