Yellow Diamonds Sedum not only has attractive long-lasting blooms but looks great year-round with green foliage that turns shades of red when cold weather arrives. The juicy foliage is ground-hugging and great for smothering annual weeds in open garden beds. The yellow bunches of starlike flowers appear in late spring and last for weeks even in locations with poor soil or heavy clay. 

Sedum middendorfianum, commonly known as Chinese Mountain Stonecrop, grows naturally in Asia and Europe at higher elevations. This winter hardy groundcover is invaluable for gardeners in cooler gardening zones. It is drought tolerant but also thrives in moist soils at the edge of a woodland. Sedum is a good choice to use as a ground cover in large areas of the garden. Tuck it into nooks and crannies of a dry stone wall, or use it as a filler plant in mixed seasonal containers. An easy-to-control spreading habit ensures this plant can be left on its own after planting. 

Yellow Diamonds Sedum Care

Sedum is the ultimate plant-it-and-forget-it perennial. As long as the location has well-draining soil and full sun, this plant should thrive. Consistent watering is needed until the plant is established and actively putting on vigorous growth. Supplemental fertilizing is rarely needed even in poor soils. Sedum can tolerate partial shade as long as there is a period of direct sun exposure during the day. 

Sedums growing in zones 6-7 may go completely dormant during the winter, losing all of their top growth. Any dead plant material should be removed in early spring as new growth begins to emerge, being careful to not disturb the delicate crown. Mulching with crushed oyster shells, fine pea gravel, or gritty sand improves plant appearance and prevents rot, even in containers. Removing the spent flower stems in summer is not necessary for good plant growth but will clean up the appearance and is easy to do without pruners or clippers. 

Yellow Diamonds Sedum Spacing

Yellow Diamonds Sedum spreads quickly to 16-18 inches while remaining low to the ground at 8-10 inches tall. Space multiple plants 16 inches apart in a garden bed. Sedums in containers can be grown much closer together as they have very shallow roots that tolerate crowding among other annuals and perennials.

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.

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).

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.
