Orders placed Friday - Sunday will ship a week from the following Monday

We ship your plants mostly Bare root which means that some of the soil and the pot have been removed from the plant. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are no issues with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. Take them out of the box and put into a pot with moist soil. As a general rule, plant in a pot twice as big as the root ball. You can gently water or wait a few days so the roots start reaching down for water. How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

We take photos of our plants to show you what they look like. We are not selling the plant in the photo. Whether your plant has flowers depends on what time of year you purchase it and whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at different paces and different sizes so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sedum is a genus of about 400 species of leaf succulents, from the northern hemisphere. They vary in growth habit from annual groundcovers to shrubs. Their flowers have 5 petals. The sedums that I offer are all perennial succulents with different cultivation requirements. Some species are very cold resistant, but don't like heat. Some species are tropical and don't take any frost.

The 'Little Gem' cultivar was made by Mrs. and Mr. Robert Grim of San Jose, California and is described as producing a low mat of small rosettes.
