General Care for General Care for Sedum adolphii ‘Golden Sedum'
‘Golden Sedum' is a fast-growing succulent, perfect for hanging baskets, green roofing, and rock gardens. It is deer resistant.
Sedum adolphii has typical watering needs for a succulent. It's best to use the “soak and dry” method, and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings.
Where to Plant
‘Golden Sedum' is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 20° F (-6.7° C), it's best to plant this succulent in a container that can be brought indoors. It does well in full to partial sun, and the tips of its leaves will blush a deep red when stressed.
Plant in an area of your garden that gets 6 hours of sunlight a day.
How to Propagate Sedum adolphii ‘Golden Sedum'
Sedum adolphii ‘Golden Sedum' is easy to propagate, and grows fairly quickly.
You can easily propagate the leaves of Sedums by choosing a firm, healthy leaf. Remove it from the main plant by gently twisting the leaf from the stem. Be sure not to leave any of the leaf on the stem (if you take a bit of the stem with the leaf, that's fine, too!).
Allow the leaf to callous over for several days, and then lay on well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil has dried completely. After roots and a rosette have appeared, and the mother leaf has withered away, plant the new growth.
To take a cutting of a Sedum adolphii, use a sharp, sterile knife or pair of scissors. Cut the stem away from the Sedum cluster, and allow the cut to callous over for a few days before planting in well-draining soil.
