What Others Have to Say About Sedum Tokyo Sun
- Tokyo Sun Sedum is a ground cover succulent that has a pop of bright yellow color! The drought tolerant & heat tolerant sedum only grows to about 3 inches tall, but it spreads and mounds very fast. The plant can also handle over a month with no water once established. During summer, the succulent produces golden star shaped flowers, which add even more color. The flowers can even attract pollinators.
- This plant does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers dry to average moisture levels with very well-drained soil, and will often die in standing water. It is considered to be drought-tolerant, and thus makes an ideal choice for a low-water garden or xeriscape application. It is not particular as to soil pH, but grows best in poor soils, and is able to handle environmental salt. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
- Tiny elongated leaves are succulent and bright yellow. Plants have a low growing mounding habit. Fine texture and vivid color add interest and spice to miniature gardens. Use as a little low growing shrub or divide carefully to plant as showy accents around the landscape. A wonderful colorful addition to any miniature planting.
- This is a great little Sedum to add contrast with its brilliant gold foliage on tiny 1″ prostrate plants. Note that it does requires a spot with good drainage, and hardiness has not been extensively tested, but we suspect its hardiness limit is zones 7-8. Even so, we think this is a deserving subject for trough or succulent container gardens.
