Highlights

'Dragon's Blood' (also known as Phedimus spurius 'Schorbuser Blut'): A colorful ground cover that starts the spring a bright green and by fall has deepened to wine red. It stands out for its bright red flowers and stems. This variety goes partially dormant in winter, losing its leaves to survive temperatures down to -30F. The plant sprouts back to life in spring, regrowing its leaves by May in most climates. It is not quite as fast growing as the other S. spurium varieties, making it a less aggressive companion plant in beds.

Sedum like well-drained, porous soil. Addition of grit or sharp sand will help porosity and drainage. Many varieties propagate by simply spreading leaves on the soil surface. To ensure division, remove top 2" of plant tips and strip lower leaves form bottom of stem. Plant in well-drained soil mix and water after 2-3 days. Do not over water! New plants should be well established after 5-6 weeks. Fertilize with a low-nitrogen fertilizer 1-2 times during growing season.
