    How well do they (Sedums in your blog.) do in the snow and cold of Sunset Gardens Zone 7 about 3300 ft. elevation.. We can get down to 9 F degrees?

    Hello R. Rusty,

    Sedums are very hardy and would do quite well in your Zone 7. I have them on my property at a zone 4 and they come back very hardy, year after year. They very easy to divide as well!

    Thanks and Happy Gardening!
