Hello, I may be at the wrong place but trying to learn. I am looking for hardy sedums that can grow in a zone 6 area. Could you post your favorites here.

Thank you,

Great idea! I would be interested in ones that can take heat and humidity. I already grow a few, but would like more. Smiling

I like tricolor. The pink in the leaves are so pretty

Next favorite is angelina. Evergreen and it has a pretty winter color.

Sondra for heat/humidity any echevaria. Graptopetalum, graptosedum Any plants from South Africa will probably do great for you (lucky!)
Teresa any alpine plants will do good for you in your zone. I live in zone 7 and my alpine plants do great if I keep them covered in the winter (due to rain, not cold) Thumbs up

Greg, what do you cover yours with? Where do you purchase your plants ? Anywhere online? We just are so limited here in KY

Thanks Greg. I am growing Graptopetalum, but don't have any echeverias. I will give them a try. I do grow most of my succulents (and all cactus) in pots, under a covered patio. That way I can control the amount of water they get. Though I can't do much about the humidity! I brought most all of what I have when I moved from Austin in March, which has a much drier climate, so I'm anxious to see how things do here. Especially in a mild, wet winter.

Please keep us posted because there are other folks that would benefit from your local plant info!! I can't remember if you asked about sources for plants - I use Aridlands.com they are so nice and get the plants out really quickly, and the plants are exactly what you expect! I have purchased several cactus and tender succulents from them!!
I would imagine that sedum repestre - either Angelina or any of the other types, would do well for you there, just keep them from afternoon sun Thumbs up

A great one is Petrosedum 'Gold Select'. It stays more compact than 'Angelina', the leaves are also more robust/thicker as are the stems. The color is better also.

This is not the same plant as 'Angelina', this one rarely blooms.

Teresa what type of sedum are you looking for? Ground cover types, or the tall types? There are many that will grow in your zone 6.

How about this beauty. It is hardy to zone 4a


This new genera cross is awesome


Zone 4 on this one


Here is a mix of different types of sedum
