If you’re looking for both an attractive and a low-maintenance plant for your home garden or landscape this year, then you should try lemon sedum.
The LSU AgCenter selected lemon sedum as a 2019 Louisiana Super Plant for many reasons, but mainly because of its effortless care and vigorous growth habit. One of its best attributes is the fantastic chartreuse-lime green, finely textured foliage and small, yellow star flowers that make it so unique.
The color of this plant’s foliage is what makes it truly striking in the landscape next to other annuals and perennials. Lemon sedum is best grown in full sun, like cactus and other succulent plants, and it is both drought- and heat-tolerant. Need I say more?
The Louisiana Super Plant program is an LSU AgCenter educational and marketing campaign that highlights tough and beautiful plants that perform well throughout the state of Louisiana. Each spring and fall, AgCenter horticulturists announce the Louisiana Super Plants selections for that year. Louisiana Super Plants have a proven track record with many years of reliable performance in Louisiana landscapes or have gone through several years of university evaluations and observations. Look for these plants at local nurseries.
