Sedum Lovin'

I am a sedum lover. My favorites are the sprawling and creeping types. The uprights, like Autumn Joy, just plain bloom too late in the autumn for me. Usually most of my annuals have been killed by frost, and they are the only plants blooming.

A few years ago I purchased my favorite sedums called the "Flaming Carpet Sedum".


The pot arrives (this was one pot) with three sedums, Angelina, Blue Spruce and Voodoo, all planted together. When it grows, it is a fabulous mixture of colors and textures. The Angelina sedum has just started to bloom. I have mixed hen and chicks in with the sedums and added mulch. Love the colors!



My hen and chicks in barnacles are next to the flaming carpet sedums.


This is an Angelina.


Hens about to bloom.






Up close.

Still sedum lovin'!

  4. My sedum is just not making any progress. It looks the same as it did when I put it in the ground back in February. Now the one I actually put in a pot...it is going crazy! Go figure. Love the three together!!!

  5. I have many sedums too. I have the Voodoo and Angelina in several planters all over the place. Mine stay out all year long. They are fun.

  7. My hens are over a foot long this year (and a bit ugly because of it) - any reason why this happened? A few feet away are some other hens and chicks and they are normal size!

  9. Hi Carlene, Your sedum is very pretty. I really like them too because they are absolutely no maintenance, can endure the heat, and look pretty even when they're not blooming. But I guess you know all that. :-)
    Thanks for stopping by,
