I wish you all lived closer to me. The sedum that I've been babying along has decided to crawl over the mums over the winter. Now I need a lot more sedum but not there. Can you please give me some tips about how to take the piece that is in the wrong place and put it in a better place?

is it a shallow rooted sedum?? IF it is I just pulled mine up and replant somewhere else,, There are so many kinds of sedum it's hard to say how to remove it. I have one that is a woody stock and deep roots, I have to dig them out to move them.

These are the Golden Sedum. Does that help? They aren't woody, they are slow growing. I got them from Burpee's a couple of years ago.

I don't want to take the entire clump, I just want to take the part of the plant that is growing over the mums. I didn't know they would do that.

So like maybe a six inch piece to give the mums breathing space. Am I looking for rootlets and disloging them from the soil and then cutting on the other side of the rootlets Or do I have to take the entire plant from root to tip?

yep look for the little rootlings and remove them and replant,, I'm thinking that when you separate them tho new shoots will start?? Maybe not but, it's worth a try.

Divide golden sedum every three to four years to keep the plant neat and to promote vigorous growth. To divide golden sedum, dig the plant with a garden fork or shovel, then pull the plant into smaller sections. Each small clump will root, as long as the clump has four or five shoots and a healthy root system. Prepare a sunny spot for the divisions ahead of time, then plant the divisions in the prepared spot immediately.
