Sedum tetractinum Stonecrop

Available Fall 2023
Size

Description

Sedum tetractinum features a beautiful display of green succulent-foliage, with rounded nodes of green leaves. Evergreen leaf color changes based on growing conditions, with russet green leaves when grown in full sun and darker shades of green with slight red tinges when grown beneath shade. Sedum tetractinum produces yellow, star shaped blooms in mid-summer. It grows equally well  in full sun or partial shade as long as soil is well-draining.

Staying low to the ground, Sedum tetractinum will spread out with creeping stems from wherever it takes root and makes an ideal perennial for containers or rock gardens. Deer and rabbit resistant, Sedum tetractinum is tolerant of droughts, survives in coastal conditions, and is attractive to butterflies. This sedum is especially useful as a groundcover needed in both sunny and shady areas in the same location.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
