Sedum telephium - 'Madona'
Sedum telephium - Cultivation Notes
Sedum's are well suited to planting at the front of the bed as low ground cover where they will cope with the most demanding dry sheltered spot in full sun. Ideally they prefer a soil with low fertility that is well drained all year round, being well suited to exposed coastal situations and dry chalky soils.
