    Sedum (Sedum makinoi) 'Ogon' is an extremely attractive groundcover sedum with delicate, light green to pale gold foliage. In my zone 7a garden, it does best in part shade with medium to dry soil. It spreads slowly in the garden to about 12 inches. It is a less common sedum and can be difficult to find in nurseries, but it is worth the effort to find it.
  • Posted by sedumzz (Your local refrigerator - Zone 7a) on Dec 6, 2021 7:31 AM concerning plant:
    Sedum makinoi 'Ogon' has leaves that emerge white/pale gold and fade to a lime green over time. Mature stems are green with pink/cream blush when extremely stressed.

    Unless very established, this plant does not overwinter well in containers. (In zone 7A, a cutting of this in a garden bed in the winter would barely survive)
