Sedum (Spurium Coccineum)
Sedum Dragon's Blood Stonecrop Sedum Spurium is a herbaceous perennial plant native to the Caucuses. Sedum Dragon's Blood seeds can be started indoors or directly outdoors, and are also commonly called Caucasian Stonecrop and Two-Row Stonecrop,
This variety of Sedum Spurium spreads to form a thick, low carpet of small, bronzy-green to beet-red leaves that are simple, smooth-margined, and succulent. Sedum Dragon's Blood blooms with extremely showy clusters of ruby-red star flowers that appear in summer and fall.
Sedum Dragon's Blood is grown primarily as an excellent creeping ground cover plant that is particularly great for hot, dry sites with poor soil. Caucasian Stonecrop is also a popular succulent to grow in rock gardens, containers, borders, sunny banks or slopes, along walkways or foundations.
Sedum spurium seeds produce the sprawling, low-to-the-ground, evergreen perennial that grows well in poor, rocky, and sandy soils, preferring a lot of sunlight and very little water.
