Description

Sedum spurium coccineum is the most robust sedum for creeping spread and for floriferousness. With deep crimson blooms and bronze-green leaves it thrives and spreads in droughty rockery edges in full sun.
Dense clusters of showy crimson blooms smother the evergreen plants. Usually about three to four inches tall, the flower stems raise three or four inches above the leaves. The flowering can be so dense that the leaves are completely hidden. Brilliant red flowers of Sedum Dragon s Blood contrast nicely with the green succulent foliage tinged with wine red margins in summer. Charming star-shaped flowers adorn the low flower clusters. Foliage will turn red with cooler temperatures in fall. Quickly forms a dense mat for a superb ground cover .

Care

Prefers full sun with average to poor well-drained soil. Can be divided every 2- 3 years in spring. Stems pull off easily and will root readily for transplanting. Winter damaged foliage can be cut back in early spring for a flush of new growth.

Landscape Use

Suitable for Container, Rock Garden, Ground Cover & Xeriscaping

Most succulents need to be watered twice a week during summers and only once in monsoon & winters. Varieties like Haworthias, Crassulas and Gasterias are well suited for low-light indoors and window-sills. If the leaves get too bulky, it is a sign of overwatering & if the leaves look shrivelled it is a sign of less watering.

As a general rule of thumb, all the ones with colourful leaves like Echeverias, Sedeveria and Graptopetalum like bright sunlight and semi shade in extreme summers. They cannot be kept indoors or in full shade. All succulents love morning sun.

You can fertilise your succulent once a month.

Watering tips : Make sure NOT to water on the plant itself. Water directly in the soil. You can use a cup or a glass to make sure the water does not spray on leaves. When watering, make sure water comes out of the drainage hole.
