Sedum kimnachii is an excellent groundcover plant, particularly for hot, dry sites with poor soil. This variety forms a flat, dense carpet of glossy chartreuse leaves. Clusters of golden-yellow flowers appear in early summer. Sedum kimnachii is well suited for the rock garden or edging in a dry border, also a good choice for containers. Sedum kimnachii makes a good companion plant for Eryngium amethystinum 'Sapphire Blue.' Grow in a lean soil for beautiful orange and green winter color.
