Description

Sedums are flowering perennials with succulent foliage that are easy to grow, available in hundreds of varieties, and gorgeous in gardens and containers. Their colour changes dramatically with the seasons - in the autumn they are rich and earthy, while in summer their flowers come in vibrant shades of pink and yellow. As interest in drought-tolerant plants grows, sedums are becoming a go-to plant.

The Plant Lover's Guide to Sedums includes everything you need to know about these beautiful gems. Plant profiles highlight 150 of the best varieties to grow, with information on zones, plant size, soil and light needs, origin, and how they are used in the landscape. Additional information includes designing with sedums, growing and propagating them, where to buy them, and where to see them in public gardens.

This book is part of the Plant Lover's Guide series on important ornamental plant groups. Written for plant-driven gardeners by recognised experts in the field, the guides offer a great education in ornamental gardening and are abundantly illustrated with inspiring photography of both the plants and gardens that feature them.
