Sedum, ‘Voodoo’ is a low-growing, sprawling, mat-forming, dark mahogany-leaved stonecrop that is commonly grown as a ground cover. It typically rises only 2-6″ tall but spreads to 12-18″ wide. Creeping, branching stems root at the nodes. Tiny, star-shaped, rose-red flowers (to 3/4″ diameter) bloom in a four-branched flowerhead in late spring to mid summer. Rose flowers reappear all summer. Thick, succulent, dark maroon-red leaves (to 1″ long) are toothed near the ends. Leaves are attractive throughout the growing season. They enjoy full sun, but some shade is fine.
This is a hardy perennial that can be used as a vigorous groundcover and a great rock garden plant! Plant this in the front of beds and borders, or as a great edging. It is also good in stone-wall pockets, on sunny banks or on slopes. It is best when planted in groups or massed as a groundcover. This Sedum will even work in containers. Durable, carefree, & long-lived. Fast growing. Deer resistant and drought proof.
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. This is a tough little plant and it is easy to grow, it loves a hot sunny location. A great addition to the flower garden!
