Description for Sedum Confusum

Sedum confusum is a sprawling ground cover which forms a foliage mat spreading by trailing stems. Features succulent, shiny, bright green leaves which typically form rosettes at the ends of stems rising to 10" tall.

Clusters of yellow, star-like flowers appear in summer. Sedum confusum is appropriately possessed of uncommon qualities. Unlike ivy, gazania and ice-plant, it does not get woody and does not build thatch.

The fleshy oval dark green leaves concentrate toward the tips of arching branches, forming lush mounds.

Caring for Sedum Confusum

  • Plant sedum seeds in early spring in well-drained, average to rich soil in full sun. Space the plants between 6 inches and 2 feet apart, depending on the type.
  • Low-growing and vigorous species will tolerate partial shade. You can also plant divisions or cuttings instead of seeds.
  • Dig a hole so that the top of the root ball is level with the surface, then place the plant in the hole and fill it in.
  • Once established, sedums require little care. Check your plants regularly to make sure they are not dry and water when needed.
  • After flowering, cut back the plants to maintain their shape.
  • Remember to divide your plants in the spring or fall to control their spread. Throughout the summer, divisions and cuttings root readily.
