Sedum Mexicanum is slated to be the Annual Plant of the Year for 2019, and I’m delighted to be growing a trial plan from Proven Winners to test it out ahead of time.
Like all creeping sedums, Sedum Mexicanum is a low growing plant that should stay well under 6 inches tall. The spread for each plant is reputed to be approximately 12 inches across.
It’s a full sun to part shade growing plant.
The great thing about this is it is incredibly heat and drought tolerant.
You’ll be able to use it in containers or your sunny landscape.

This is a zone seven hardy plant. So do not confuse this with the hardy, perennial sedums as it will not tolerate frost or freezing temperatures. If you’re looking for a hardy version of this plant, let me suggest Sedum rupestre ‘Angelina’ which pretty much looks the same.
Notes and review.
I received this plant in the spring of 2018 as a review plant from Proven Winners. It was planted in my front full sun garden far away from the Sedum ‘Angelina’.
I will add growing notes and a final review as the plant develops.
Planted in the garden the first week of June, 2018.
