Product Details

Highlights

Coppertone Stonecrop (Sedum nussbaumerianum, sometimes grouped with Sedum adolphi): A stemmed grower with orange and green foliage that turns a bright copper when grown in full sun. It has pointed, upturned leaves and grows tall stems that eventually bend and spill nicely out of containers.

After trials by the Royal Horticultural Society, S. nussbaumerianum earned the Award of Garden Merit for its appearance and vigor.

This variety is extremely drought and heat tolerant and should be watered deeply, but only when the soil is dry. Using gritty, well-draining soil and containers with drainage holes will help growers avoid overwatering and rot. Protect this succulent from frost and heavy rains by letting it overwinter indoors near a sunny window of under a grow light. In summer, Coppertone can produce round clusters of white, star-shaped flowers.

After years of growth, any tall, leggy plants are simple to prune and replant as stem cuttings.
