Sedum rupestre ‘Gold Moss’

Common Name: Gold Moss

Sedum rupestre, commonly known as ‘Gold Moss’ has soft, needle-like, alpine foliage is cheerfully yellow with green undertones. In cooler weather it takes on a beautiful, autumnal orange luster. It’s soft “mossy” appearance is soothing, and feels moist, though it is a succulent plant that is not tremendously water needy. “Gold Moss” is most beautiful in succulent container gardening, contrasted against bolder “Hens and Chicks” and small Aloes. It grows in a low mat to 1′ round, only a couple of inches high, spreading and cascading over edges, and filling into nooks and crannies of rock gardens. Hardy to sub-teens; full sun in cooler climates, needs some shade in desert and inland areas.
