Golden Carpet Sedum, Gold Moss
|Highly diverse, drought-tolerant annuals and perennials, Stonecrops range from tiny, hardy, rock garden succulents to 2-foot-tall perennials. Smaller types are prized for their unusual foliage, and are grown where texture is needed or in pot and dish gardens. The larger types are shrub-like, and good in borders or containers, but watch out, because plants are easily crushed. Mostly evergreen and generally low-maintenance, varieties come from all over the world, so care needs vary widely. Prefer full sun in Zones 4 to 6 and part shade in Zones 7 to 10. Sold in containers or cell packs in the spring.
Its trailing stems, clothed in tiny, fleshy, pale green leaves, create 2 to 3-inch-tall mounds. Tiny, golden yellow flowers bloom in late spring and summer. May become invasive.
