Sedum kamtschaticum is a hardy evergreen sedum great for extensive to semi-intensive green roofs and will reach up to 6 inches in height. Star like yellow flowers accent its foliage in the spring and summer providing nourishment for pollinating insects. This sedum does well in both full sun and is holding as strong as any sedum on our shaded green roof. Like most green roof plants Sedum kamtschaticum prefers well drained soil with a lite amount of fertilizer during the first few years of establishment. This sedum is drought tolerant and can be grown from seeds, cuttings, or plugs.
