Sedum Lemon Ball is the most popular perennial we sell at Martin Garden Center due to its eye-catching appearance, easy-to-grow nature, and ability to thrive in various conditions. The plant belongs to the family Crassulaceae and is known for its small, round, bright yellow-green leaves resembling miniature balls. It is a low-growing plant that typically reaches a height of 4 to 6 inches and a spread of 10 to 12 inches. It has a clumping growth habit and produces small clusters of star-shaped, yellow flowers that bloom in late summer or early fall.
Sedum Lemon Ball is relatively low maintenance and can tolerate a wide range of growing conditions. It can grow in full sun or partial shade and is tolerant of drought and poor soil conditions. The plant is also deer-resistant and attracts butterflies and bees. The plant benefits from occasional fertilization, but it is not necessary for survival. Sedum Lemon Ball can be propagated through stem cuttings or by division.
One of the best things about Sedum Lemon Ball is its ability to change color depending on the season. During the summer, the plant’s leaves are bright yellow-green, but as the weather cools, the foliage turns a vibrant orange-red shade. This makes the plant an exciting addition to any garden, providing a pop of color throughout the growing season.
