Plant Information

Sedums, like Hostas and have become staples in American perennial gardens in recent years. These incredible plants are now at or near the top of everyone's list of the best perennial flowers of them all.

Sedums add color from midsummer through early fall, when most other flowers are waning. And they light up with bright flower heads giving any garden a needed lift for weeks. Like other valuable mainstays of perennial display, the bloom lasts for week and weeks.

    USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

    To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

    • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
    • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
