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.
