Sedum adolphii 'Firestorm', a special cultivar of ‘Golden Sedum,’ features elongated leaves with fiery red and orange margins, transitioning to a golden green shade towards the center of each rosette. Very bright light, from either a window or a grow lamp, and cool (but not freezing) temperatures will deepen and expand the red tones on each leaf. Low growing with trailing stems, ‘Firestorm’ reaches its maximum size around 8 inches tall and 24 inches wide, making it an excellent ground cover in larger containers or rock gardens, in temperate climates.
Adapted to harsh growing environments, ‘Firestorm’ can thrive in especially poor, rocky, or sandy soil – the key component being that the soil is well-draining, to avoid rot. The ‘soak and dry’ method of watering, in which the plant is given a thorough watering only once the soil has had a chance to completely dry out, works very well for this variety, as established root systems are very drought tolerant. Hardy only to Zone 10, ‘Firestorm’ can tolerate a very light frost, but should be moved indoors during cold winter months.
With the right growing conditions, ‘Firestorm’ will readily send up rounded clusters of star-shaped white flowers in the late winter to early spring.

All plants are shipped bare-root with the exception of House Plants and Plant Club Subscription Boxes. House plants and succulents will ship from separate locations and may arrive at different times. Orders ship Monday-Friday each week. Please allow 1-3 business days for your order to be processed. We ship within the USA and its outlying territories ONLY. Read our full policy here.
Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
