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.
