sedum in zone 10 full sun
Hi. I've been trying to grow sedum as ground cover, but I don't know if I just have the wrong variety or what, but I am not getting the explosive growth I've read about in these forums. I think they may be Sedum hispanicum minus from looking at pictures on the web. I got the starts from somebody who said they have theirs in part shade and moist soil in a pot. Mine are in the ground in full sun, so I've been giving them a lot of water (which drains instantly in the sandy soil) everyday to no avail. They look to me to be just cooking and dying off. I almost think I'm overwatering except one patch that gets shade a little earlier in the afternoon than the other patches does seem to be doing slightly better. Can anyone give me advice on how to get these guys going? Is my yard just too hot or did I just wait too late in the season to plant them? Is there a better low sedum variety I can use that's more suited for my zone? Thanks for any insight!
