Dragon’s Blood Stonecrop is a low-maintenance plant that requires little care once established. It prefers well-draining soil and can tolerate drought conditions, making it an ideal choice for xeriscaping. Water sparingly, only when the soil is completely dry. Fertilize once a year in the spring with a balanced fertilizer. Prune back in the spring to promote bushier growth.
Plant Dragon’s Blood Stonecrop in well-draining soil in a location that receives full sun to partial shade. Dig a hole that is slightly larger than the root ball and plant at the same depth as it was in the container. Water thoroughly after planting and then only when the soil is completely dry. Space plants 12-18 inches apart to allow for spreading.
