moving my sedum

gimpytwice(5b ohio)April 2, 2005

I have a beautiful sedum growing along the front fence but between the squirrels and neighbors children alot of it has been damaged .I think the name of it is black dragon

Can I transplant it to another location without killing it,it would be in the next 2 weeks that I would want to do it if possible.

Thanks to you all,Sharyl

All the sedums I have seem to be Realy tough. I haven't killed one yet.

same here- I've had sedums that I moved, and not only did they do just fine, but several of the bits that broke off en route took hold in odd crevices of the walk way!

they're resilliant plants, and so far, not even hard freezes have hurt mine.

I move my sedums when it's 90 degrees and they still settle in just fine!

Sedum is also pretty easily rooted, so you may want to take some cuttings and establish new plants.

Ditto with mine. I've moved an Autumn Joy sedum three times and it never even pouted with me.

I think I bought about 5 Autumn J. Sedum last week (I just know they're called Sedum). Would they grow in an area that gets some sun in the morning and tends to be a bit dry? I'm in zone 7.

.. My experience has been that they grow well in any type soil (unless it is way too rich) and that they will flower even if they have been in dappled shade. I never have any problems moving them around and even dividing them all summer. They are the most hardy perennials I know about.

When is the best tie to divide sedum autumn joy? how often should it be done? how close together should they be planted?

Hello Delaney: for dividing, the rule of thumb is to divide at the opposite time from when the plants bloom. So a fall blooming plant like Sedum Autumn Joy should be divided in the spring when it is first coming up. But perennials that bloom early in the spring should be divided and moved early in the fall, when the worst of the summer heat is behind you - yet there is still lots of time for the plant to get established. Good luck!

I rooted some pieces in water and placed them into pots inside during an Edmonton winter. The plants didn't do to well inside, but survived. I put into the garden in the spring and they flourished and one sent out a shoot that I covered with soil and another plant started.

I have my great-grandfathers sedum which has been moved (and divided) many times since 1959 (and at all times of the year). Wonderful memories for my grandchildren are being passed on.
