October daphne sedum
© Richie Steffen / Great Plant Picks
Sedum sieboldii is an excellent groundcover plant, particularly for hot, dry sites with poor soil. This variety forms a flat, dense mound of blue green leaves. Clusters of pink flowers appear in late summer. Sedum sieboldii is well suited for the rock garden or edging in a dry border, also a good choice for containers. Sedum sieboldii makes a good companion plant for Eryngium amethystinum 'Sapphire Blue.'

- This sedum is best grown in well-drained or sandy soil. The best flowering is in full sun, but it will tolerate light shade and still look good. Once established it is drought tolerant. Cut to the ground in fall.
