Unique and eye-catching, award-winner Sedum nussbaumerianum (Coppertone Stonecrop) is a low growing, evergreen, perennial subshrub with attractive rosettes of thick pointed leaves, about 2 in. (5 cm) long at maturity. Yellow-green in partial shade, the leaves turn rosy-gold to bright coppery red in full sun.How do you take care of Sedum nussbaumerianum?
Sedum nussbaumerianum exhibits the same watering requirements as other succulents. You should only give the succulent water when its soil is dry to the touch. Giving the plant more water than it needs will cause its roots to rot. To find out if the soil is dry, insert a stick one inch into its topsoil.What does a nussbaumerianum plant look like?
It has pointed, upturned leaves and grows tall stems that eventually bend and spill nicely out of containers. After trials by the Royal Horticultural Society, S. nussbaumerianum earned the Award of Garden Merit for its appearance and vigor.How much sun does Sedum need to grow?
This succulent's bright orange color stands out when it is exposed to heat, full sun, and little water. For this reason, Sedum nussbaumerianum is best grown outdoors. If grown inside, it tends not to thrive and will lose its beautiful copper color. Plant your Sedum in an area that gets at least 6 hours of sun per day.
