Sedum Seeds

Sedum is a genus of flowering plants in the family Crassulaceae. They are mostly evergreen perennial succulent plants, with leaves shaped like those of a rosette.A mixture of many attractive low-growing sedum varieties representing a wide range of foliage types and flower colours. They are low maintenance, durable and interesting. They enhance the appearance of green roofs and rockeries due to differing leaf forms, flower colours and extended flowering period. These drought-tolerant succulents are hardy and easy to grow, requiring minimal care, only full sun and good drainage to thrive.

Dividing your sedum needs to be done in early spring when new green shoots are seen. Assuming you have an already-rooted sedum plant, dig up the entire plant, making clean cuts with the shovel on each side. Make sure your shovel is inserted deep enough to ensure that you have a complete root ball. Beginning at the center and slicing toward the outer edge, your goal is to either end up with two or four sections with roots, making certain that each piece includes green buds. The ideal outcome would be to end up with sections that have multiple eyes or stemmed sections with multiple roots.When they are completely dried, remove them from the bag and thresh (separate the seeds from the seedheads with your fingers) over a very fine screen (placed over some type of bowl) that will allow the seeds to fall through, keeping the rest of the debris on the screen. When you have all the seeds, put them into a labeled plastic bag stating the name of the sedum and the date the seeds were collected. The seeds harvested from fall-blooming sedum can be sown the following spring, although you can store the collected seeds in your refrigerator for up to a year.
