Strawberry Milkshake Sedum Care
Strawberry Milkshake Sedum prefers to grow in full sun, in well-drained soil. This plant is drought tolerant and likes drier conditions, so its water needs are on the low side. Water when the top layer of soil is completely dry. Strawberry Milkshake Sedum prefers soil on the acidic side and does not require fertilizer.
Strawberry Milkshake Sedum is a low-maintenance plant that does not require pruning or deadheading once flowering begins. If you’d like to keep a tighter habit, you can cut the plant down by half in May or June to keep the plant from getting leggy. Make clean, diagonal cuts to adjust the habit and delay the bloom time. Spent sedum flowers can be left over winter for interest, or the plant can be cut to the ground. In early spring, cut back any remaining foliage to prepare for new growth. Sedums are easy to split and transplant at any point during the growing season.
Strawberry Milkshake Sedum Spacing
Strawberry Milkshake Sedum can reach 20 - 24 inches high with a spread of 30 - 36 inches. Space plants 30 - 36 inches apart for mass planting.
