More Details

The Lemon Ball Sedum, scientifically known as Sedum mexicanum 'Lemon Ball', is a vibrant perennial that adds a delightful pop of color to any garden or landscape. This plant is celebrated for its bright, lime-green succulent foliage that forms a tight mound. With proper care, the Lemon Ball Sedum is not only drought-tolerant but also offers an extended season of visual interest, making it an ideal choice for gardeners looking to add a drought-resistant splash of brightness to their garden spaces.

Growth rate: Fast growth rate. Reaches a mature height of 6-8 inches and width of 12-24 inches

Pruning: Pinch back as needed to maintain shape or control spreading. "Pinching back" is a gardening technique where the tips of plant stems are removed to encourage bushier growth, control size, and shape the plant. For Lemon Ball Sedum, it helps maintain a compact form and prevent excessive spreading.

Fertilization: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the spring.

Winter Protection: It's frost hardy, but in colder areas or during harsh winters, mulching or covering can provide additional protection.


Select a location with well-draining soil and good sunlight. Dig a hole that's twice the width and equal depth of the plant's root ball. Position the sedum ensuring the top of the root ball is even with the ground level. Backfill with soil, pressing down gently to remove air pockets. Water deeply to establish. If desired, apply a thin layer of mulch, ensuring it doesn’t touch the plant directly.

While it thrives best in full sun, the Lemon Ball Sedum is adaptable to partial shade. After establishment, it's highly drought-tolerant, requiring minimal watering.
