Sedums are also well adapted to container growing. With the latest craze of growing succulents in containers, sedums match up well with agave, sempervivum and other succulents. In warm climates, these succulent containers can stay outdoors year round. In colder regions, bring them indoors before a freeze to protect them and the pot from freezing and thawing conditions.
You can grow the sedum in a sunny window or under grow lights. Another option is to remove the sedums from the container in fall, plant them in the garden well before your ground freezes and then transplant them into a new container the following spring.
A nice feature of the creeping sedums is their ability to root from their stems. This allows gardeners to propagate many new plants from a few mother plants.
In spring, check along the stems of your creeping sedums to see where it may have rooted on its own. Cut the stem below the roots to remove it from the mother plant, dig it up and replant in a new location.
You can also take a 6-inch long cutting of creeping and clumping sedums, remove the bottom leaves, dip the cut ends in rooting hormone powder and stick those cuttings in a pot filled with slightly moistened potting soil. Place the cuttings in a bright room out of direct sunlight and in a month or so, they should root and form new plants.
