With its tightly packed, scalloped, dusty blue-green leaves and dense cluster of hot pink fall blooms, the October Daphne Sedum (Sedum sieboldii) is a gorgeous succulent perennial for the low-maintenance garden or container. This sun-loving Sedum grows 6-8 inches tall and can spread 12-15 inches wide, making it an ideal plant for a rock garden, mixed container, or the border of a walking path or garden. Like other succulents, the October Daphne Sedum requires little more than the occasional deep watering or rain. In colder temperatures, the leaves may even deepen their color, continuing to create fall and winter interest.

The October Daphne Sedum is ideal for hot, dry garden areas that may have less access to water. As Sedums are typically deer resistant, the October Daphne is an ideal choice for sunny areas that struggle with herbivory. The October Daphne Sedum also grows well in containers as the ‘spiller’ with plenty of drainage. Being extremely drought tolerant, this Sedum can be used to create low-maintenance planters in sunny, hot regions.

October Daphne Sedum Care

Like other Sedums, the October Daphne can grow well in poorer soils given that they have adequate drainage. Water deeply but infrequently, allowing the soil to dry out in between waterings. Plant the October Daphne Sedum in a hole that is the same size as the root ball. Sedums perform best in full sun with access to at least 6 hours of direct sun a day. 

In colder regions, Sedum may die back in the winter. In the early spring, trim back dried up stems and flower heads before new growth appears. If grown in lower light or rich soils, Sedum may become leggy, requiring trimming in the summer to prevent the stems from splitting or breaking. 

October Daphne Sedum Spacing

To grow as a standalone plant, plant the October Daphne at least 1 foot away from other plants. To create a mass planting, place Sedums slightly closer together. When planting in a container, choose a pot that is a bit bigger than the root ball and plant the October Daphne with other drought-tolerant plants.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
