Regarded as one of the best sedums, Sedum kamtschaticum var. floriferum ‘Weihenstephaner Gold’ (Orange Stonecrop) is a low growing, mat-forming, semi-evergreen perennial with fleshy, dark green, spoon-shaped leaves delicately tinged with bronze. Borne in the leaf axils and at the tips of leafy, red stems, clusters of small, golden-yellow, starry flowers appear in summer. As the flowers fade, the seedheads develop reddish-pink tones, creating a terrific bicolor effect. The leaves turn beet-red to purple in fall. ‘Weihenstephaner Gold’ spreads slowly by short underground rhizomes, and can be used to create rivers of color in flower beds or as a cheerful groundcover. It is also wonderful on greenroofs and in containers.

  • Grows with a spreading and sprawling habit up to 3-6 in. tall (7-15 cm) and 3-12 in. wide (7-30 cm).
  • Best grown in full sun or partial shade, in poor to moderately fertile, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils. Protect from excessive winter wet.
  • Perfect for rock gardens, containers, as a groundcover or edging plant.
  • Virtually pest free. May be subject to fungal and bacterial crown rot and roots rots.
  • Cut back after flowering to maintain shape or leave seedheads overwinter
  • Propagate by division in spring. Propagate by softwood cuttings of non-flowering shoots in early summer
