Looking for a drought tolerant, low-growing, low-maintenance ground cover? Start some Sedum Hispanicum seeds and grow these great ground cover plants! This Sedum plant has blue-green, succulent foliage, and it only reaches a few inches in height. As the weather warms, the foliage turns to a blue-grey color, and it has a soft feathery feel to it. In late spring to summer it has clusters of small whitish pink blooms. Sedum Stonecrop is a tough ground cover plant that tolerates some wear and tear such as light walking.
This Sedum ground cover is commonly called Spanish Stonecrop, and although it is a sun lover in mild climates, this perennial prefers some afternoon shade in areas with extremely hot summers. Porous well-drained soil is essential. Plant Sedum Hispanicum Spanish Stonecrop in coarse sandy or gravelly soil in a rock garden, trough, wall, or container, or use it as a small-scale ground cover on a slope or bank. In too much shade it slowly dwindles or is overtaken by neighboring plants.
Sedum has tiny seeds which should be mixed with fine sand for an even sowing. Sow Sedum ground cover seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before the last frost is expected. Use small pots or flats and sterile starter mix. Pre-moisten the starter mix and sow Sedum seeds on the surface. Press the seed into the moistened soil, and do not it. Keep the Stonecrop seeds moist but not saturated until they germinate. Water from the underside of the pots or use a spray bottle and lightly mist the seeds. Plant the Sedum seedlings outdoors once sufficient growth has been made. Established plants can be divided every 3 - 4 years for best performancedevelopment.
