Phedimus spurius, also known as the Caucasian stonecrop or two-row stonecrop, is a flowering plant in the Crassulaceae family. It is often referred to as Sedum spurium in literature. This evergreen perennial has fleshy leaves and produces pink flowers from spring to fall. It is part of the Rhodiola clade and is considered a separate genus, Phedimus. There are several cultivars of this plant, with 'Schorbuser Blut' being a popular choice due to its pink flowers and hardiness in cold temperatures. It requires a sheltered, sunny spot with well-drained soil to thrive.

Germination/Propagation Top

Suggest a correction or add new data!
Sow seeds at 20°C, expecting germination within 3 months without further temperature treatment.
Requires Light or Surface Sowing: These seeds need light to germinate and should not be covered with soil or only very lightly. They are often very small and sown directly on the surface of the growing medium.
