Sedums are an easy answer to our continuing summer droughts and water shortages. These fleshy, succulent plants are excellent for hot, dry areas. In addition many varieties provide three --- even four -- season interest.
Sedum are easy to grow in a sunny, well-drained site. They are free of insects and diseases and perform best when not fertilized. Virtually all Sedum will attract butterflies and many are also attractive to hummingbirds.
