rose live forever sedum

Zone indiana zone 5 | newpatpoo added on March 6, 2016 | Answered

I found my plant's base with new growth all over the bottom of it. It was laying on top of the ground w/o any dirt attached to the bottom of it. The new spring growth is sprouting and I don't see any roots. It is healthy looking growth (little buds where roots would be), but it is 1st of March in zone 5. What to do?

Live Forever Sedum is a very reliable and hardy sedum.

If you did not dead head the plant in the fall, those stems and flowers will lie flat on the ground and can be removed now or during your early spring clean up.
You can generally just give a gentle pull and they will break away from the plant. You can use a garden snip also to cut them close to the ground.
The new growth will began to appear as small rosettes close to the ground, each of which will become a stem.
Your plant is growing exactly the way it should be!
