I’m becoming more and more fond of sedums. I’ve added a few this year thanks to a kindly neighbor.
They’re hardy and dependable, and bring all kinds of texture to the garden. The Autumn Joy sedum is a popular one, for good reason. Throughout the summer its green leaves are interesting enough, and then just as everything around it is beginning to fade, it bursts into bloom. It can be propagated by cuttings or can be divided, and doesn’t take long to grow to a nice size.
I love sedums mixed in and about other plants, but I think a large patch of a variety of them could be really pretty. Hmm, I may have just created another project for myself.
