Phedimus spurius 'Album Superbum', formerly known as Sedum spurium 'Album Superbum', is a low-growing, sprawling succulent that is commonly grown as a ground cover. It typically grows up to 6 inches (15 cm) tall and can somewhat quickly form a dense mat of foliage. Clusters of tiny white, star-like flowers appear above the foliage in early summer.

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 isn't hard to grow Caucasian Stonecrop under the right circumstances, but this plant is forgiving even in the wrong ones. Sometimes the soil isn't as permeable as it should be, but the roots of Caucasian Stonecrops can actually push through it. Other times the sun doesn't come out as often, and while this can possibly stunt the plant's growth over a prolonged time, you can still have a healthy plant.

The soil does need to be well-drained. Very good drainage is important for preventing root rot or fungal diseases. Learn more at How to Grow and Care for Phedimus.
