Sedum adolphii 'Golden Glow'


Not quite ready


Product Details


Golden Glow (Sedum adolphi or S. adolphii) (Hamet): A colorful stemmed grower with thick, upturned leaves. The plant has a glossy, lime base color and the leaf tips flush orange when grown in bright sunlight.

S. adolphii is drought-adapted and grows natively in rocky outcroppings in Mexico. It has branching stems and as they grow they bend, making them colorful trailing plants in container arrangements. They are also easy to prune and transplant for a more compact look, as they re-root readily from stem cuttings (more info).

As a soft succulent, Golden Glow needs protection from hard frosts and heavy rains. Growers in hardiness zone 8 and below can bring it indoors to overwinter near a sunny window or under a grow light. Water deeply when the soil is completely dry and be sure to use well-draining pots and soil.

S. adolphii can be a reluctant bloomer in cultivation, but will sometimes flower in winter. When blooming, it produces white, star-shaped flowers with a subtle fragrance.
