orange delight

‘Orange Delight’ (Sedum nussbaumerianum): A stemmed grower with orange and yellow foliage. Its leaf tips and margins deepen to a vibrant orange when grown in full sun. It has pointed, upturned leaves and grows tall stems that eventually bend and spill nicely out of containers. This variety is freely branching

This variety is extremely drought and heat tolerant and should be watered deeply, but only when the soil is dry. Using gritty, well-draining soil and containers with drainage holes will help growers avoid overwatering and rot. Protect this succulent from frost and heavy rains by letting it overwinter indoors near a sunny window of under a grow light. In summer, ‘Orange Delight’ can produce round clusters of white, star-shaped flowers.

After years of growth, any tall, leggy plants are simple to prune and replant
