Plant details

Sedum aizoon is an easy-going species for the front of a sunny border or a large rock garden. The flat heads of yellow flowers appear at the top of the clusters of upright stems in mid-summer. Once established, plants are fairly drought-tolerant, making it a good choice for inclusion in a drought garden. Here it associates well with the mauve and purple foliage of Euphorbia dulcis 'Chameleon', and the architectural shape of Euphorbia mellifera. It looks good in a rock garden with a carpet of Sedum acre.
