Coppertone Sedum will add color and beauty to any garden with its uniquely colored coppery foliage. Easy to grow and drought tolerant, this sun-loving sedum will spark interest and brighten any landscape with its glowing, warm tones of green-gold, orange, and copper leaves.
Sedum nussbaumerianum is an exciting addition to rock gardens, mixed borders, or slopes. The warm colors of Coppertone Sedum provide contrast and interest in the garden especially when planted with succulents that have cool blue, deep burgundy, or rich green colored foliage. This low-growing stonecrop naturally grows on rocky cliffs and is an excellent choice in hanging baskets, raised beds, or containers with its fiery colored stems spilling over the edge.
White, lightly fragrant flower clusters appear in late winter or early spring but the colorful foliage is the main attraction for this eye-catching Sedum and looks best when grown in full sun. Sedum nussbaumerianum ‘Coppertone’ is one of the larger-leaf sedums with almond-shaped leaves that measure approximately 1.5 inches long.
Low maintenance, Sedum nussbaumerianum is an excellent choice for both the novice or experienced gardener. Add bold color to your waterwise garden today with Coppertone Sedum.
Sedum 'Coppertone' grows best in nutrient-poor, sandy or rocky soil with good drainage. For best color and form, plant in a location that will receive full sun or light afternoon shade.
Color intensity can be affected by temperature, soil pH, soil moisture, and light. The intensity of the coppery-orange color will fade to golden-green or green if grown in too much shade. The orange color is most intense on the new growth.
Low light levels will cause the stems to stretch, leaving gaps in between the leaf nodes, and creating an unattractive shape.
Water deeply right after planting to help establish roots; allow the soil to dry in between waterings. Once established, Coppertone Sedum tolerates drought, heat, and humidity. Although drought tolerant, Sedum nussbaumerianum will look better with supplemental irrigation in summer in hotter, arid climates.
Coppertone Sedum requires little maintenance. Cut back stems as needed to maintain size and shape. Pinch tips in the spring to encourage dense growth. Use hand shears to remove spent flower stems and maintain a tidy appearance.
Adding a soil amendment like Kellogg Palm & Cactus Mix as a light top dressing each year will keep it growing strong.
