4in Potted Plant
“GREEN WHEN NOT STRESSED. BRILLIANT/ORANGE/RED STRESS COLORS”
Name: Sedum nussbaumerianum var, coppertone
This relatively pointy rosette of succulent leaves loves to creep and produce plenty of new rosettes. Yellow-green in partial shade, the leaves turn rosy-gold to bright coppery red in full sun. Low growing and low maintenance makes this a great edging plant for xeriscaping.

Height: 8-12 in (20-30 cm)
Hardiness: USDA Zones 9-10
Flower Color: White
Other Names: Sedum Adolphii, Coppertone Stonecrop, Nussbaumer’s Sedum, Golden Sedum
Growing Instructions: Low Water, Moderate light
Water only once soil becomes dry, any pots should also have proper drainage. Well-draining soil should also be used, cactus mixes are good and often contain extra perlite and sand. Roots should not remain saturated for extended periods. A weekly watering during the growing seasons (Spring/Summer) and less often during the dormant period (Winter) is usually more than enough water. Bright indirect light is preferred, although they will tolerate a shady area – although they may stretch more. Fertilize with ½ strength during the growing season. Cuttings and leaf plantings should be given several days so they can callus over before watering so they do not intake too much water and rot. Avoid freezing temperatures, ideal temperatures are above 60° F (15° C), although they will tolerate lower temperatures.
