Sedum question!

Posted by ellysgarden z9 ( on

I have sedum 'Stone Crop' and it is supposed to bloom red flowers in the late summer to fall. I've had this sedum for two years now and it has never flowered for me. It grows really well and fast, but not a flower in sight. Can anyone tell me why?

RE: Sedum question!

"Stone Crop" is a common name for most all sedums. And there are some sedums (which I suspect you may have) that are just reluctant bloomers. Also, yours might be one that just isn't happy enough in zone 9.

RE: Sedum question!

Zone 9 is a perfect zone for Sedums....yet many varieties may be reluctant to bloom unless certain conditions are met.Is yours a tall growing variety?If so,make sure it doesn't get too much water during the warm'll tend to bloom better with dry and bright situations.
