Autumn Fire Stonecrop: Sedum spectabile - 2GAL Pot
Sedum spectabile 'Autumn Fire' is a showy perennial with blue-green foliage that turns vibrant red in autumn. It is adorned with clusters of pink flowers.
Caring for stonecrop, also known as Sedum, involves providing it with the right growing conditions and regular maintenance. Stonecrop plants are typically drought-tolerant and prefer full sun, although they can tolerate partial shade. Plant them in well-draining soil with good airflow to prevent root rot. Water the plants sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings, as overwatering can cause the roots to rot. Stonecrop plants are generally low-maintenance and do not require regular fertilization. However, a light application of a balanced fertilizer in the spring can promote healthy growth. Prune the plants in early spring to remove dead or damaged foliage and encourage bushier growth. Stonecrop is generally resistant to pests and diseases. With proper care, your stonecrop will thrive, showcasing its colorful and drought-tolerant foliage while adding texture and beauty to your garden or landscape.
