Sedum 'Joyce Tulloch'
This succulent is a hybrid, probably resulting from a cross between Sedum versadense and Sedum lucidum. It was described by Ray Stephenson in Sedum Society Newsletter 70 (2004). The origin is unknown.
Sedum 'Joyce Tulloch' is a beautiful succulent subshrub with erect to decumbent, much-branched stems that bear fleshy, green leaves with a reddish tip and margins. The leaves are covered with very short hairs. They are flushed red when the plant is grown in full sun and more intensely colored on the lower surface.
The small flowers are white, star-shaped 5-merous, and appear in clusters on stalks with bracts similar to the leaves in spring.
How to Grow and Care for Sedum 'Joyce Tulloch'
Light: This succulent grows best in locations where it will enjoy the full sun for at least six hours daily. It will tolerate partial shade but will not thrive in deep shade. Keep your indoor plant in a sunny window or under artificial lights.
Soil: S. 'Joyce Tulloch' does not like to sit in waterlogged soil, so drainage is essential to prevent root rot. Choose a well-draining soil mix.
Temperature: This plant is tolerant of heat and freezing temperatures. S. 'Joyce Tulloch' can withstand temperatures as low as 20 °F (-6.7 °C). USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 9a to 11b, 20 to 50 °F (-6.7 to 10 °C).
Watering: From spring through fall, water thoroughly and wait for the soil to dry out before watering again. In winter, water your plant just enough to keep it from shriveling. Avoid wetting the leaves, stems, and flowers when watering.
Fertilizing: Feed with a balanced organic fertilizer in spring. Feeding is unnecessary if the plant is divided annually and provided with fresh soil.
Repotting: Repot your plant when it outgrows its current pot by moving it out to a larger container to hold the plant better. Spring is the best time to repot S. 'Joyce Tulloch'. Make sure the soil is dry before you begin repotting.
Propagation: This succulent is propagated by taking stem or leaf cuttings in spring when it is in active growth.
