Sedum acre - Goldmoss Stonecrop

Sedum acre
Our Fire Hydrant Garden is glowing with a carpet of yellow flowers of Sedum acre.  One can see why this is commonly called Goldmoss.  This plant is a vigorous groundcover that tolerates hot, dry conditions and poor soil.  After showing its star-shaped masses of flowers in May/June it remains an evergreen plant for the rest of the year.  It is easily propagated by breaking off a piece and sticking it in the ground!  The key to success with Sedum is well-drained soil.
