Evergreen Groundcover Sedums
Swansons is pleased to offer a wide variety of evergreen groundcover plants suitable for low maintenance areas or lawn substitutes.
Sedums (also known as Stonecrop) are fleshy, succulent, drought tolerant plants well suited to sunny beds, rock gardens, hot, exposed sites and slopes. They offer an extensive choice of foliage textures bearing clusters of starry flowers in varying colors in summer.
The plants listed below will form evergreen mats rooting into the ground as they spread. Most are fast growing unless otherwise noted. All require full sun. Regular weeding and watering is required until established. Selections should be made wisely according to specific site requirements.
For more detailed information about each plant, please refer to individual cultivar signs, or consult one of Swanson’s nursery professionals.
