How to plant Sedum spectabile (Stonecrop)

Grow Sedum in full sun positions. They prefer fertile, well drained soil. As they have succulent parts you immediately know they don’t like damp soil and are drought resistant. They are prone to roots rot if the soil doesn’t drain well. If your soil is heavy, add some grit to it to improve drainage before planting sedums.
