Very hardy and drought tolerant, Sedum acre (Gold Moss) is a low growing, mat-forming, evergreen succulent perennial with tangled stems clothed with conical, bright green leaves. Small clusters of tiny, star-shaped, bright yellow flowers, adorned with protruding stamens, bloom just above the foliage throughout most of the summer. Vigorous, Sedum acre spreads quickly and can be used to create a cheerful groundcover. It is also wonderful spilling over rock walls and cascading from containers. Possible lawn substitute with minimal foot traffic. Terrific for sunny areas with poor dry soil.

  • Grows up to 3 in. tall (7 cm) and 12-24 in. wide (30-60 cm). Plants freely self-seed in optimal growing conditions.
  • Best grown in full sun, in poor to moderately fertile, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils. Thrives in shallow, rocky, limestone to sandstone soil. Water occasionally once established. Protect from excessive winter wet.
  • Perfect for rock gardens, containers, as a groundcover or edging plant.
  • No serious pest or disease issues. Keep an eye out for slugs, snails and root rot. Deer and rabbit resistant.
  • Low maintenance, this Sedum forgives neglect!
  • Propagate by softwood cuttings
  • Native to Europe, Africa, Turkey
