Sedum "Lawn"

plstqd(9)May 3, 2013

I was shopping at Lowes today, and saw a couple of different types of sedum lawn -- approx 1 foot squares of sedum that you supposedly just plunk down on the soil surface, water, and they will take root and spread. Does anyone have any experience with this sort of thing here? I'm looking for options to green up my back yard, and was intrigued by these for possibly planting up against an east-facing wall of the house.

Try it. I'd love to have a sedum lawn. I tested a few in pots and everything died. Either too much or too little water, bad drainage, etc. I suspect it couldn't take the intense sun here as well.

Let us know how it does for you.

Neat idea! I've tried several types of groundcover types of sedums over the years but all have perished by the end of August. If you give them a try let us know how they do for you. If you do just a few and they die, no harm done, and if they thrive, they're easy to propagate. Should be an interesting experiment if you give it a try. Let us know either way! Happy gardening!
