Sedum adolphii 'Firestorm'


Sedum adolphii 'Firestorm', a special cultivar of ‘Golden Sedum,’ features elongated leaves with fiery red and orange margins, transitioning to a golden green shade towards the center of each rosette. Very bright light, from either a window or a grow lamp, and cool (but not freezing) temperatures will deepen and expand the red tones on each leaf.  Low growing with trailing stems, ‘Firestorm’ reaches its maximum size around 8 inches tall and 24 inches wide, making it an excellent ground cover in larger containers or rock gardens, in temperate climates.

Adapted to harsh growing environments, ‘Firestorm’ can thrive in especially poor, rocky, or sandy soil – the key component being that the soil is well-draining, to avoid rot. The ‘soak and dry’ method of watering, in which the plant is given a thorough watering only once the soil has had a chance to completely dry out, works very well for this variety, as established root systems are very drought tolerant. Hardy only to Zone 10, ‘Firestorm’ can tolerate a very light frost, but should be moved indoors during cold winter months.

With the right growing conditions, ‘Firestorm’ will readily send up rounded clusters of star-shaped white flowers in the late winter to early spring.
