In this regard, is sedum frost hardy?
Sedums with fine, small leaves are generally more cold-hardy and less heat-tolerant than those with large leaves. Also freeze-tolerant, the 4-inch-tall lance-leaf stonecrop (Sedum lanceolatum) is hardy in USDA zones 4 through 9. It has yellow flowers, and its needlelike, gray-green leaves can turn red in winter.
Additionally, how cold can succulents tolerate? Succulents tend to prefer a temperate climate with the temperatures ranging from 60 to 80°F. Some can tolerate temperatures as low as 40°F or as high as 90°F. Gardeners sometimes use these extreme temperatures to “stress” their succulents into changing color.
Similarly one may ask, can sedum survive winter?
Most varieties thrive in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 3 through 9 and are tolerant of cold, heat and dry soil. In colder climates, tall sedum dies back in winter and returns in spring.
Where does sedum grow best?
When & Where to Plant Sedum Light: Sedum (or 'stone crop flower') do best in full to part sun. While taller hybrids need full sun to flower their best, creeping types will grow fine in part shade. Soil: Sedums like a very well-drained soil with a neutral to slightly alkaline pH.
