Sedum spurium ‘John Creech’

Sedum spurium ‘John Creech’

This useful little sedum grows only 2″-4″ (5-10 cm) high, but spreads 10″-12″ (25-30 cm). It’s a nice filler for front-of-the-border empty space, or can be used between stepping stones, since it tolerates light foot traffic. It blooms in July and August. Some retailers describe the leaves as scalloped, but they remind me of Ranunculus flower petals. I purchased it as a companion to some Sedum ‘Vera Jameson’, and the two coordinate quite well.

This is a very hardy sedum (to Zone 2), tolerates salt, and doesn’t require much water once established. It can be grown in full sun or part shade.
