Sunsparkler Wildfire Stonecrop Sedum attracts butterflies and is deer resistant. Add this sedum for a cheery, colorful filler in a container garden. Plant it in rock gardens, in mass planting as a ground cover, or in the front of border gardens. Large, long-lasting rose-pink flower heads appear in late summer.
Sunsparkler® Wildfire Stonecrop Sedum Care
Once established, this plant is drought tolerant. The colors will be more vibrant in full sun and drier growing conditions. Add a layer of compost when planting and then once a year.
The dried flower heads remain attractive in the winter garden. Wait until spring to cut them back. If you mulch your gardens, only add a thin layer around this sedum. Add just enough for weed control but not enough to retain excess moisture. Sedums don’t like competition from weeds.
Sunsparkler® Wildfire Stonecrop Sedum Spacing
Space individual plants 19 inches apart to give this ground cover room to spread out. It will be happier when given room to grow.
