The Spread of Stonecrop Orpin

This summer I planted a stonecrop orpin silver frost plant. It is a low lying plant and spreads very rapidly. I have noticed it is spreading all over the place between all my other plants. If it grows between the other plants, it is OK, but what I want to know is if it will smother the other plants?

While it is a prolific spreader, this plant should not crowd out others growing with it.

Do You Cut Stonecrop Back for Winter?

This is the first year for Stonecrop in our garden. How do we prepare for winter. Do we cut them back and let them go until spring?

Thank you

ANSWERS
Sumatra

Cutting them back will encourage them to get larger next year, but it really is not necessary.

I live in Zone 4 also, and I have stonecrop throughout my garden. I have good luck using a light fish emulsion fertilizer once a month on my plants.

The plants need a low nitrogen fertilizer applied a few times in the growing season.

Black Spots on My Kamtschaticum Stonecrop

I have black spots on the leaves of my stone crop (kamtschaticum). Some of the stems look as though something has eaten all the leaves off of them. Can you give me some help in identifying the problem and a solution to it? It is only in one area of my ground cover now but I would like to keep it from spreading if I can. Thank you for any help you can give me in order to save my plants.

It is likely a fungus. Treat the tree with a fungicide such as neem oil.

Planting Stonecrop Perennials

How deep do I plant them? Also, the soil is mixed with river rock. Is that ok?

Your Stonecrop plants do not have a big root system and can be planted quite shallow in a well draining soil that rich in organic material.

Here are some articles that will help you get started!

There are many different types and varieties of Stonecrops and Sedums to enjoy and plant!

Stonecrop Plant

Do I cut my stonecrop plant back for the winter?

ANSWERS

That is largely a personal decision. Some opt not to cut it back because they find that the flowers, which can remain on the plants well into early winter, add dimension and interest to the succulents even as they dry. You are fine either way!

Plant Identification

Hello,
I get compliments on this plant. It’s a succulent, “breaks away” easily and grow wherever it falls. I get compliments on it but I cannot tell folks what it is. Please advise.
Respectfully, Susan W. Brown
