TalkingMade Myself A Small Sedum Garden


I love these little plants. They`re very easy to grow and come in all sizes and shapes. I`ll put a picture of them in the gallery so you all can see.

Hi Gram18,

Ironically, I have done the same here in Austin, TX - begun propagating various sedums from cuttings given to me by other gardening friends. Like you, I find them to be fascinating plants and they do grow well in central TX. Like most plant with a common genus name, the diversity is great, some grown for ground cover, some grown for unusual foliage, some for their flowering, but one characteristic I do like about Sedums is their winter hardiness once established. Thanks for sharing the picture.

Hey Gram, After touring my back yard gardens following that awful ice storm we had and seeing my newly rooted and planted sedums looking like nothing ever hit them, I am really sold on sedums now! Can they ever take a licking and come back ticking. They have earned my respect.

Gonna have to pursue more of them this spring.

Yes they are one very deffinent attractor for anyones garden. If you don`t already have it, get Frosty Morning! YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY!! Very beautiful. Unfortunetly mine died last year and I am going to buy another! OH YES!!! I think too I would like to buy some alpine plants and get a small garden of those going. Plus been thinking seriously about a small container water garden. Hmmmmm will let ya all know what I decide.

Gram,

Sedum reflexum 'Blue Spruce'
Sedum repestre 'Angelina'
Sedum x 'Purple Emperor'
Sedum lineare 'variegata'
Sedum erythrostictum 'Frosty Morn'


These are the varieties I know for sure I have. I have others but they are unidentified at this time. My Frosty Morn is totally died back for winter and I assume will reappear in spring. I will definitely be looking for more varieties to add to my garden this spring.

The angelina and blue spruce are another couple of my favs. I love the way the blue spruce really seems like a small spruce tree! AND how about that color on the angelina, cool huh?!?!

Is anyone growing this variety of sedum known as "Gold and Green"? Gram, is this one you grow in your Sedum garden?

sedum


I just planted this little one in my backyard 3 days ago. Clearance from Lowes. It rained like crazy the last 2 days, (Go figure) And this morning it had the tiniest little "sprout?' or shoot thing growing off the top. I'm so impressed it didn't drown. It's an Autumn Fire Sedum. A little smaller than the typical ones and blooms pink flowers.

It looks so small in my yard!

That was a great website! Love my sedums. Have several varieties including the creeping variety. They are wonderful plants and the varieties they have are amazing. Tough plant, easy to grow!
