Q.Ground Cover

Anonymous added on May 20, 2011 | Answered

I have a 12-inch perimeter around the bottom of our 24′ above ground pool and wanted to plant a fairly easy to maintain, thick ground cover in this area. I found some Chinese sedum at a local store and bought it. Now, before planting, I have a concern. The exposure says to plant in full sun. On the web I have found info indicating full sun to partial shade, so here is the issue. Some areas will only get full sun for about 4-5 hours of the day due to the shading of the pool walls. There is never partial sun, only full or no sun. Will this plant work for me in this environment or should I return it and try something else? Can you suggest an alternative if this plant won’t work?

The Chinese Sedum should do just fine.
