Want to brighten up your succulent clusters just in time for Spring? Consider this “Fine Gold Sedum,” aka Sedum hispanicum var. minus aureum, which adds tiny, feathery-yellow spots of color either to your containers or beds. The warm yellow perfectly complements the teals, light greens and even purples of other succulents.

If left to its own designs, this European sedum will gradually spread in a soft, flat blanket of color. Like some of the other little mossy sedums, it isn’t happy in a dry succulent bed. Treat it more like a woodland plant, with richer soil, more light and regular water, and it will be much happier.

Plant in full sun for the brightest color. It can take shade, but will turn slightly green.
