I polished off my first Sedum 'Ogon' quicker than Janet Leigh could finish her shower by planting it in our full sun rock garden. Turns out, this sedum hates full sun but thrives in part sun to light shade and, thankfully, my subsequent attempts have fared superbly. This wonderful semi-deciduous (the pessimistic version of semi-evergreen) groundcover to 18" wide in 2 years, hails from the southern Japan provinces of Honshu, Kyushu, and Shikoku where it can be found in moist, shady, rocky areas...not your typical sedum habitat. Sedum 'Ogon' is a wonderful Japanese selection with bright gold foliage that is somewhat viridescent (turns chartreuse) in late summer. The yellow flowers in midsummer are nearly unnoticeable against the golden foliage.
