Phedimus spurius 'Fuldaglut', formerly known as Sedum spurium 'Fuldaglut', is a mat-forming succulent with slender stems and attractive green to bronze leaves that turn burgundy in fall and winter. It grows up to 3 inches (7.5 cm) tall and spreads up to 18 inches (45 cm) wide. Clusters of deep rose-pink star-shaped flowers are produced on upright stems in late summer. It goes partially dormant in winter, losing most of its leaves and resprouting them each spring.

How to Grow and Care
When growing your Caucasian Stonecrop, you need to keep in mind that you have to give it sun and fertilizer, and you do have to water it sometimes even though it's drought-resistant. You can give it a balanced, low-number fertilizer to help with poor soil, and you can even help it out with deadheading the dried flowers.
It is not hard to grow Caucasian Stonecrop under the right circumstances, but this succulent is forgiving even in the wrong ones. Sometimes the soil is not as permeable as it should be, but this plant's roots can push through it. Other times the sun does not come out as often, and while this can stunt the plant's growth over a prolonged time, you can still have a healthy Caucasian Stonecrop.
