Sedum spathulifolium Cape Blanco - Cape Blanco Stonecrop

Sedum spathulifolium Cape Blanco is a low growing California Native succulent. Sedum spathulifolium is native to cliffs in the Sierras and Coast Ranges north into British Columbia. The Cape Blanco selection was made in Oregon. The chalky grey leaves stand out in the shade garden. Sedum spathulifolium Cape Blanco is drought tolerant and objects to a damp setting. The Cape Blanco Stonecrop blooms from late Spring into Summer producing yellow flowers from the tops of the rosettes of leaves. Our plants have stayed 2" tall and slowly spread mounding up taller against rocks or stepping stones. In a shaded garden Sedum spathulifolium Cape Blanco doesn't require much additional water. Plant Sedum spathulifolium Cape Blanco in full sun near the coast but for inland gardens the Cape Blanco Stonecrop prefers some protection. Sedum spathulifolium Cape Blanco is Winter hardy to 10° F.
