Sedum floriferum is a perennial which serves as a fantastic ground cover. A slightly darker green foliage, the spongy succulent leaves retain water easily, making this sedum drought tolerant. It will grow approximately four to six inches high. Enjoying full sun, this plant will thrive best in hardiness zones three through nine. It will produce bright yellow, star-shaped flowers in late spring or early summer. Little care should be needed for this independent stonecrop. It invites many nectar-attracted species including butterflies and honey bees. This sedum is easily spread by root cuttings.
