'Tricolor' Sedum grows just 5-6" high and has beautiful rounded, sage green and snowy-white foliage rimmed in pink. It produces clusters of light pink flowers in mid summer. 'Tricolor' is a low growing, hardy perennial that can be used as a vigorous groundcover and a great rock garden plant which generally doubles in diameter every year! This is an evergreen plant with fairly upright stems bearing opposite pairs of variegated pale green obovate leaves. Plant in the front of beds and borders, as a great edging. Sedum is quite drought tolerant because of its thick, succulent leaves which can store water. Sedum is highly attractive to butterflies, and several species can be found crowding over the flowers, making an additional attraction in the garden. ‘Tricolor’ is a tough little plant and it is easy to grow, it loves a hot sunny location. A great addition to the flower garden!
Notes: One of the nicest, most floriferous, colorful, long-blooming, vigorous sedums. This plant is an excellent plant for those places you just don't water often. It is very drought tolerant. Plant where the sedum will see a lot of sunshine. The succulent clumps of Sedum may be divided and replanted any time during the growing season. The shorter varieties are suited for wall gardens, crevices or rock gardens.
Planting instructions: May be planted in any well-drained soil. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Very easy to grow, tolerates moist or dry soil and spreads rapidly. May be divided in spring or fall when plants become crowded. In February and March cut back the old flowerheads and stems. Sedum spurium ‘Tricolor’ needs to be planted in full sun in well-drained soil. It will tolerate most soil types and is drought resistant. No pruning is necessary except to clean up dead stems.
