Requires good drainage; thrives in lean, sandy or rocky soil; avoid wet, poorly drained sites. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Control weeds until the plants have filled in. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer.

History

The blooms and foliage are a food source for the brown elfin butterfly and others. In spite of being resistant to grazing by deer, this Sedum is considered to be edible, eaten raw or used as a unique addition to soups or stir-fry. Note: use caution, as high consumption may cause stomach upset.

Like the Vera Jameson Stonecrop the Cape Blanco is going to be a nice add on to my stone area of the dry river bed. I like how it is already growing in nicely!
