(Before It's News)

I’ve been growing the perennial Tri-Color Sedum for a couple years now. This plant makes a great border plant.

Tri Color Sedum

Tri Color Sedum

It has green and white variegated leaves and a delicate pink flower that blooms in the summer. The white edges on the fleshy leaves can take on a pink-bluish color in cooler weather.

It will grow about 3 inches high then spread to make an awesome ground cover.

Make sure to trim any all-green shoots you see to maintain the variegation of this plant.

Tri Color Sedum will grow well in full sun or partial shade and will do well in dryer climates, and pretty much any type of soil, even clay based soil.

This plant is tough as nails and bounds back in the spring even after the harshest winter.

Tri Color Sedum is very easy to propagate. All you need to do is take a cutting, strip off the bottom leaves then stick it in a flat of sand or a mixture made up of peat and perlite and then put it in the shade and keep it watered really well.

The donkeys love Tri Color Sedum almost as much as I do!
