Sedum spurium ‘Tricolor’ (or Phedimus spurius ‘Tricolor’) is a variegated hardy succulent with white, green, and pink foliage. Its leaves are small and fleshy with green center and white pink margins. In the summer, small star-shaped peachy flowers appear in clusters.
Sedum spurium ‘Tricolor’ is a great creeping plant to drape over a wall with other green trailing types, or in a mixed border. Prune hard to keep the great variegated foliage fresh, and trim out any stray plain green leaves as it does tend to revert.
This sedum is fragile and more sensitive to its environment due to its tiny size. Therefore it may be a bit etiolated or lose some color when being in a closed dark box for transit. Simply place it in bright light and it will adjust itself quickly.
Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch, then let drain completely.
