Follow the Yellow Brick Road for an easy-care, drought-tolerant, colorful ground-cover for tough situations. With starry yellow flowers that bloom when much of the garden is winding down, this little sedum has evergreen leaves and red stems hold interest the rest of the year. The flowers are a late-season nectar source for bees and butterflies too, who animate the garden with their flight. Luckily for us, rabbits are uninterested in the sweet flowers and stalwart leaves.
Yellow Brick Road tops off at only eight inches high, making a compact winner for any sunny spot, from container to border. Since it can spread about 24 inches, it would excel draping from a patio urn, or anchoring a slope or rock garden.
Rock 'N Low Yellow Brick Road Stonecrop Sedum Care
A sedum hybrid, Yellow Brick Road asks for really two things: full sun, and the best drainage. In a planter, drainage holes are a must, and it would be best not to use any soil with “moisture-retaining crystals”. Raised beds are a great option if the native soil is overly wet, or composed of mainly clay. Sedums and succulents are drought-tolerant, but all plants need moisture to get their roots established in their new home, so consistent watering is key for the first year especially.
Yellow Brick Road needs little in the way of fertilizer. If the soil is very poor, compost or soil condition would be a nice addition as a top-dressing in spring.
Rock 'N Low Yellow Brick Road Stonecrop Sedum Spacing
Two feet would be a generous spacing for a groundcover of Yellow Brick Road; in a container, you could go closer.
