Necessary conditions for growing
A perennial herbaceous plant grows under natural conditions in temperate climates on meadows, along roads and mountain slopes. Powder purple undemanding to soil fertility, tolerates frost and drought. The flower can be grown in the garden, at the cottage or balcony, providing it with minimal conditions.
Location and lighting
Land for landing sedum should be well lit. The culture is demanding on the amount of sunlight throughout the day. In the shade of trees, shrubs and buildings slowly grows shoots, pulled out. Purple color of the petals and abundant flowering is possible only in conditions of maximum illumination. Sedum planted in open areas. Perennials are not afraid of drafts and wind.
In central Russia, it costs without additional shelter for the winter. In cold climates, it is recommended to warm the bushes with spruce branches or a special covering material..
Sedum grows best with moderate humidity. Wetlands, the proximity of reservoirs contribute to the development of fungal diseases, the emergence of root rot. Succulent is able to maintain a supply of moisture and do without watering for a long time. The purple flower is more resistant to drought than to excessive moisture in the air and soil. During the rainy period, the soil needs to be loosened to allow oxygen to reach the roots of the plant.
The pledge of proper plant development is a loose soil structure with good drainage properties. Fertility and nutritional composition does not matter much. Unpretentious perennial can grow in stony soils, on poor, sandy areas. It is undesirable to plant grass in dense, clayey soil. For abundant flowering, you can fertilize the soil with humus or compost.
How to plant a plant on the site
First of all, it is necessary to take care of the drainage layer, especially if there is a risk of flooding with melt water on the site. At the bottom of the pit lay 5-7 cm layer of fine gravel or brick chips. Dig the soil sifted from the old roots, remove the remnants of weeds. Partially fill the landing hole, level and slightly tamped. The stonecrop seedlings are placed in the hole, instilled with a layer of earth and sand, they compress the soil around the main stem.
The need for watering
Additional soil moistening requires sedum during long periods of hot, dry weather. For the rest of the time, culture is costing natural rainfall. After watering, it is recommended to loosen the ground around the plant, trying to prevent soil compaction.
An important condition for growth - timely removal of weeds that suppress the growth of shoots. In the autumn months, when the daily temperature decreases, watering the sedum is stopped.
Additional nutrition is needed to purple sedum for abundant flowering. The lack of basic elements is observed in perennial, growing next to other flowering crops. As a source it is recommended to use wood ash, humus or complex mineral preparations. Application of dressings is carried out once a year, in the spring or immediately after flowering. Do not exceed the specified dosage, especially during the autumn fertilizer. This will weaken the plant before hibernation.
Pests and diseases
If you properly care for purple sedum, it will not be affected by harmful insects and diseases.The choice of a site with high soil moisture or close groundwater location leads to the development of fungal diseases. The disease develops with excessive watering or during the rainy season. It is difficult to cure a plant, it is dug out and burned. The soil is etched with a fungicide.
A weakened plant can be affected by aphids, weevil, or caterpillars of sawflies, especially if cruciferous species grow near the stonecrop. Pest control is carried out using insecticide spraying.
