Once established, very little ongoing care is needed. Its compact size is perfect for a container or a border to provide some late-summer color.
Mojave Jewels™ Ruby Stonecrop Sedum Care
To thrive, the Mojave Jewels™ Ruby Stonecrop Sedum needs full sun, ideally six plus hours of sunlight per day. It hates wet feet, so a free-draining soil is a must for this sedum to flourish. Happy in leaner soils, Mojave Jewels™ does not need extra fertilizer. Water it for the first year to help its root system develop and afterwards during dry spells.
Removing the faded blooms will help encourage new ones to form. Old foliage and stems can be removed in spring before the new growth appears. Mulching can help insulate the roots in colder climates.

The Mojave Jewels™ Ruby Stonecrop Sedum can grow to 12 to 15 inches tall and 18 to 20 inches wide. If planting this sedum en masse, space it around 18 inches apart for a wall of color.
