I have found this to be not nearly as robust as other tall sedums. I therefore use it as an accent, interplanting here and there among Autumn Joy plants, where its variegated green/white foliage provides welcome bright spots.

I have a hanging basket of it from a small start I got in a trade 2 years ago. It overgrew another pot, so I took cuttings and rooted them in the present basket and gave the other one away. It's a lovely succulent plant that grows fast. Mine thrives in morning filtered sun where it hangs, and I water it every few days. The 1st pot bloomed beautifully twice, but my latest hasn't yet. I tried growing some in the ground in a flower bed, but snails love it, so I went to hanging baskets and that's working well. No snails.
