Turquoise tails sedum is a small, succulent plant. It grows as a compact mat of light blue, succulent leaves. In June and July, upright spikes of creamy yellow flowers create an interesting accent in the landscape.
This sedum is quite heat and drought tolerant. It is very easy to grow and can tolerate shallow soils.
Turquoise tails sedum has proven to be winter hardy at the Xeriscape Demonstration Garden. It is has thrived in hot, dry locations, even those with very shallow soil.
This plant is evergreen, which adds visual interest to the landscape in the winter. We highly recommend it for rock gardens, pockets of soil in rock wall, and front edges of planting beds.
Remove flowering stalks after the blooms are finished.
