Sedum (Sedum Pulchellum Seastar) - This lovely little perennial ground cover plant establishes easily from Sedum ground cover seed. Seastar Sedum is a native of the United States, and it features a mounding habit, succulent, evergreen mat-forming foliage and star-shaped blooms of pale pink. Seastar is perfect for an alpine or rock garden or general ground cover. It thrives in full sun but tolerates partial shade. This variety tolerates moist conditions better than other varieties of Sedum.
Sedum has tiny seeds which should be mixed with finest sand or talcum for an even sowing. Sow Sedum ground cover seed indoors 6 - 8 weeks before the last frost is expected. Use small pots or flats and sterile starter mix. Pre-moisten the starter mix and sow Sedum ground cover seeds on the surface. Press the seed into the moistened soil, and do not cover the Sedum seed. Keep the seeds moist but not saturated until they germinate. Water from the underside of the pots or use a spray bottle and lightly mist the seeds.
