  • Special notes:  
    Sedum oxypetalum grows as a small tree-shaped shrub with a stubby trunk and upright stems with pale gray-green papery peeling bark. The leaves are small, of a medium green color, and notched at the tip. This plant blooms in summer when the branch tips are covered by small star-shaped pale-yellow flowers that have pinkish colored centers. Sedum oxypetalum needs well-drained soil and only occasional watering in summer—the best flowers and winter hardiness are achieved when plant is kept drier. Sedum oxypetalum goes somewhat deciduous in winter particularly if kept dry or when temperatures drop much below freezing. As a deciduous plant it can be hardy in temperatures as low as 15 to 20°F.
