Sedum hirsutum is a species of flowering plant in the family Crassulaceae. It's commonly known as "hairy stonecrop" due to its hairy leaves. This succulent perennial is native to Europe and typically grows in rocky or gravelly habitats. Its clusters of tiny star-shaped yellow flowers make it a popular choice for rock gardens and container gardening.

Sedum hirsutum is relatively easy to care for:

1. **Light:** It thrives in full sun to partial shade. Place it where it can get at least 6 hours of sunlight per day.

2. **Soil:** Well-draining soil is crucial to prevent root rot. A sandy or gritty soil mix works well.

3. **Water:** Allow the soil to dry out between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it's better to underwater than overwater.

4. **Temperature:** It's hardy so it can withstand some cold temperatures. However, protect it from extreme cold or frost.

5. **Fertilizer:** Sedum hirsutum doesn't require much fertilization. You can fertilize sparingly with a balanced fertilizer during the growing season.

6. **Propagation:** You can propagate it easily from stem cuttings or by division in spring or early summer.

7. **Pruning:** Trim back any dead or leggy growth to maintain a compact shape and encourage new growth.

Overall, Sedum hirsutum is quite forgiving and low-maintenance once established.
