The Best of Season

Right now we have have the best selection of sedum and succulents we have ever grown.  Below are some photos of my favorites.

Come and see me

me with sedum

 

Sedum rubrotinctum
Jelly Bean Sedum

 

This is a really cute sedum.  However cute is probably not a good description for such a hardy sedum.  It can withstand our winters with fluctuating temperatures.  Like all sedum when it is really cold they are best kept on the dry side.  Plant in full sun for best color.

Gaptopetalum paraguayense
Ghost plant

 

This in one sedum that you plant and leave it be.  It thrives in your sunniest and driest location.  The more sun the rosier in color it gets.  Salmon color flowers cover this plant in spring.  Best as a potted plant or in coarse well drained garden soil.

Plant name
Lemon Ball Sedum

 

There are several chartreuse or bright yellow sedum on the market.  This on is my favorite for its vigor.  This variety holds up well to our brutal summers, the main demise of most sedum. When planted in combinations select other plants that it will not crowd out.  When planted in containers trim the overflow often to maintain

fullness on the top.

Echeveria elegans
Texas Rose

 

This is the one that receives the most comments.  The rosette structure of the “leaves” is marvelous.  Reminds me of the Spirograph  I played with as a kid.  The silver with pink hues is contrast beautifully with the salmon color flowers that rise eight to ten inches above the foliage.

A low grower that will thrive all year long.  The cooler it gets the more intense the copper color comes out.  In the spring, yellow flowers rise two to three inches above the low growing foliage.  Super easy addition to your succulent collection.

Sedum spp
Blue sedum

 

This is the one sedum that can take quite a lot of shade.  I found out quite by accident when a clam shell planter in the shadiest part of the garden center was thriving with one.  It is not blue spruce sedum.  That is one variety often sold in early spring here in our area.  I have found that it does not hold up to our summers

Aloe maculata
Soap aloe

 

Commonly known as soap aloe.  This picture was taken in my yard.  I love it for its ease and repeated blooms.  The flower spikes rise two feet above the foliage.  The salmon color flowers are a great nectar source for your humming birds.  Plant in full to part sun.  Once established they will spread to make a great ground cover.  The leaves are edible. Peel the thickest part of the “leaf” and eat.  They taste like cucumber.  A calming affect on the digestive system.

Sedum spp.
Hopkins rosy grey sedum

 

Sometimes in the plant world people make up names.  It just so happens that this one was named by my friend Doug Hopkins.  It does not surprise me that he would allow his name to be associated with this plant.  It is a trouble free plant.  Super cold hardy and super heat resistant.  Plant in the area that nothing will grow.  Give it plenty of sun
