Sedum (Stonecrop), kamtschaticum ‘Ellacombianum’

This stonecrop is a clean, compact, low-growing, spreading perennial. Features fleshy, succulent-like, triangular, scalloped, vigorous green leaves (to 1.5″ long) which form a loose, open mat of foliage about 4″ off the ground. Foliage turns varying shades of red in autumn and can be attractive. Clusters of star-shaped lemon-yellow flowers (to 1/2″ wide) appear in late spring on arching stems rising above the foliage to 6″ tall. Sedum is highly attractive to butterflies and insects, and several species can be found crowding over the flowers, making an additional attraction in the garden. Ellacombianum is a tough little plant and it is easy to grow, it loves a hot sunny location. A great addition to the flower garden!

General Information +

Botanical: Sedum kamtschaticum 'Ellacombianum'

Common: Stonecrop

Family: Crassulaceae

General Characteristics: Dense creeping, tight whorls or serrated, vigorous green foliage are topped with bright lemon-yellow flowers in summer followed by rust-red seed head. The dense, low, toothed foliage is highly attractive and looks great in a rock garden or along the perennial border, border fronts, banks and slopes. Can be used as a small scale ground cover. This plant is an excellent plant for those places you just don't water often. Plant where the sedum will see a lot of sunshine as the leaves can actually turn floppy with too much shade. 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/Care Instructions +

Pests or Diseases: No serious insect or disease problems.

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. Easily grown in average (including somewhat poor), dry to medium wet, well-drained soils in full sun. Prefers moist soils with good drainage.
