Looking for a tough, low-growing groundcover that can take the heat and thrive in poor soil? Sedum acre 'Aureum' is your perfect plant! This Golden Stonecrop forms a dense mat of tiny succulent leaves that turn a beautiful buttery yellow in spring. It's covered in tiny golden star flowers in early summer, and is a fast grower that will soon cover a large area. Just be sure to keep it away from slower-growing alpine plants that it might smother.

Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot.
