Appreciated for its brightly colored blossoms, ease of culture, and drought tolerance 'Rosy Glow' is one of the best Sedums for the front of the bed or as edging. Use as a ground cover, or at the top of a terrace or wall where it can be allowed to cascade over the edge.
Performs best in full sun in moist, well-drained soils, but it is extremely urban tolerant. Sedum can be grown in highly stresul sites around rockery with thin, poor, or very dry soils, of various pH, low fertility, extreme heat, drought, and high light reflectance; however, it is not tolerant of wet or poorly drained soils. Plants grown in rich soil tend to be lanky and open. Most Sedumvarieties should be grown in full sun to light shade; however, lower growing types will survive in partial shade.
Sedum is one of the most popular perennials grown in American gardens because it is very easy to grow and hardy in most areas of the country. Thick, succulent leaves which can store water, allow established Sedum to withstand periods of drought. Divide Sedum every 3 to 4 years to maintain compact growth habit. Older plants tend to split in the center if they have not been divided. Pinching the taller varieties back by half in early summer will also help prevent them from splitting. This plant is not usually bothered by pests or diseases.
