Sedum Seeks Sun in Syracuse
They get questions.
Question: How can I keep my sedum from flopping over? I’ve seen it in other peoples’ gardens and it always seems much sturdier and stockier.

Answer: Sedum are succulents, which means they are good at holding water, so they are able to tolerate hot, dry conditions. That’s why the creeping versions especially are standard rock garden denizens. Like most plants that do well in full sun, they might get a little stretchy and loose if grown in too much shade.
