Undergoing MyBlogLog Verification

Friday, November 28, 2008


Chiastophyllum or Cotyledon is a cousin to Sedum, succulent, so propagating is easy because it sends out underground rhizomes which produce new plant clumps so dig those up either in the spring or fall and transplant. The foliage is either green or variegated(cream) and its yellow flowers will bloom from May until July but it prefers partial shade and a well draining moist soil and grows up to a height of 10". If you plant in a container make certain that you do not over water. It is evergreen in warmer zones, not below Zone 5. Deer may munch.
