What is Sedum Mexicanum

Sedum mexicanum ‘Lemon Ball’, also known as Mexican Stonecrop, is a vibrant and hardy succulent that thrives in USDA hardiness zones 4 to 9, with some sources suggesting suitability up to zone 11​​​​​​​​​​. This plant is native to Mexico and Central America and is recognized for its drought tolerance and ability to withstand temperatures as low as 0 to 40 °F (-17.8 to 4.4 °C)​​. It grows to a mature height of 4 to 6 inches and can spread to 10-18 inches wide, forming bright yellow flower clusters that bloom in late spring, which are attractive to bees and butterflies​​​​.

For optimal growth, ‘Lemon Ball’ requires a sunny spot with at least 6 hours of full sun each day, although it can also tolerate filtered or partial sun​​. The soil should be well-draining, and while the plant is drought-resistant, it benefits from regular watering from spring through fall, ensuring the soil dries out between waterings​​. This succulent is not particularly demanding regarding humidity and is hardy down to -30°F, indicating its resilience in various climatic conditions​​.
