Planting & Care

Planting and caring for the Rock 'N Round® 'Bundle of Joy' Stonecrop involves straightforward steps, making it accessible even to novice gardeners. Here's a comprehensive guide to help you successfully grow and maintain this resilient and beautiful perennial:

Planting Instructions:

  • Location: Choose a location that receives full sun, as this plant thrives in areas with at least six hours of direct sunlight per day. It's adaptable to part sun conditions but blooms best in full sun.
  • Soil: This Sedum hybrid prefers poor to average, well-drained soil. It is tolerant of a wide range of soil types, including sandy, loamy, and clay soils, as long as they are well-drained. It can grow in both acidic and alkaline pH levels.
  • Planting Time: The best time to plant is in the spring after the danger of frost has passed or in the early fall to allow the plant to establish before winter.
  • Spacing: Space plants 16 to 20 inches apart to allow for their mature spread. This ensures adequate air circulation and reduces the risk of disease.

Care Instructions:

  • Watering: Water the plants deeply after planting to help establish roots. Once established, the Rock 'N Round® 'Bundle of Joy' is drought-tolerant and requires minimal watering. Avoid overwatering, as this plant does not tolerate soggy conditions.
  • Fertilizing: This plant does not require fertilization. In fact, too much fertilizer can promote leggy growth and reduce its hardiness. Its ability to thrive in poor soils makes it low maintenance in terms of feeding.
  • Pruning: Minimal pruning is required. Deadhead spent flowers to maintain a tidy appearance and potentially encourage a second bloom. In early spring, before new growth starts, you can trim back any dead or damaged foliage from the previous season.
  • Mulching: Applying a thin layer of mulch can help retain soil moisture and reduce weed growth without keeping the soil too wet. Ensure the mulch is not touching the plant's base to prevent moisture buildup that could lead to rot.
  • Winter Care: The Rock 'N Round® 'Bundle of Joy' is hardy in zones 3-9 and typically does not require special winter care in these zones. However, in the northernmost parts of its range, a light mulch layer can provide extra protection against freeze-thaw cycles.

Pest and Disease Management:

  • This Sedum hybrid is generally disease and pest-resistant. However, keeping the area around the plants clear of debris and avoiding overhead watering can help prevent potential issues.

By following these planting and care guidelines, the Rock 'N Round® 'Bundle of Joy' Stonecrop will thrive in your garden, offering a low-maintenance option for adding beauty and attracting pollinators throughout its blooming season.
