Quick Overview:

xSedoro is an intergeneric hybrid resulting from a cross between a plant in the genus Sedum with a plant in the genus Orostachys. Both are in the Stonecrop family. Many of the plants in each genus are typically found in the wild growing in dry rocky or stony areas.  ‘Blue Elf’ is a low-growing mat-forming succulent that typically rises to only 3” tall but spreads to 15” wide over the first year. Clusters of fragrant dark pink flowers smother the plant foliage in late summer (August-September). Steel blue tufted foliage rosettes of this plant come from the orostachys parent. Pink flowers come from the sedum parent.

Description

Easily grown in average, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Thrives in sandy to gravelly soils of moderate to low fertility. Tolerates some light part shade in hot summer climates, but will produce weak floppy growth when grown in too much shade or in overly rich soils. Needs sharp soil drainage to perform well. Tolerates drought.
