The upright sedum i was given is doing great now !! I was planning on planting them soon.I noticed they are getting ready to bloom.I didn't know if they reseed to come back,if so i need to get them in the ground before they bloom.I am going to go on and get them in the ground and work on my rock garden around them.

These are mine, many different kinds but all the taller ones. I thought I had a picture of the buds coming up from the ground in spring but can't find it. You an either leave the foliage on all winter and cut before the new growth starts or cut late fall.

I have never had my upright sedum form flowers ever, same goes with my aeonium arboreum, I think it is my limited sun here in my garden area.

Lovely to see the blooming upright sedums Hurray! My sedum just forms multiple branches here and there, or sometimes makes pups..they look like a huge bouquet of leaves right now. Smiling

Here is mine right now: this is a sedum dendroideum

Jelinda, your 'upright' sedum is not the kind that goes dormant and comes back from the underground roots, like springs photos.
Yours looks more like the type tarev is showing in her photo.
It probably won't lose all of it leaves, maybe be semi-dormant? Or not dormant at all. It will be fun to watch what it does this winter. For now I would put it in a deeper pot and give it some winter protection from too much rain. What do you think tarev?

I was thinking the same as you spring, until I went back and looked at the plant. Sticking tongue out
It will be interesting to see what the blooms look like, might help us get closer to an identity for it. Thumbs up

I think not a deeper pot yet for jojoe's plant. It still is small. I would position that plant in a bit sunnier area though to encourage those blooms to show. My sedum can take the rains that we have here, since our rains are not that intense, it often comes only around winter to spring, then just dry weather the rest of the year, not much humidity here either. I notice my sedum actually loves getting some stepped up watering during summer this year. Maybe it is the type of succulent too that is actively in bloom during fall, I have some of my succulents prepping up some blooms now that it is a bit cooler.

Okay, the pot you see the upright sedums in isn't a pot to say,they are in what my hubby calls my nursery,it's a long pot that i put anything that i am trying to get into better shape or see if it will root,or will come back,plant come & go all summer from that pot.

I was planning on putting them in the ground if not today then tomorrow?? Is that not a good idea? They are for a rock type garden i am slowly putting together & i do mean slowly.I didn't make a lot of plans i only know a few things i want to put in it.

The picture of the plant that has the buds (the close up) is the only plant i got from where it came from.I them from 3 different people but they were all from around me grown outside.I also have a container of small ones (pups) i wasn't sure exactly what to do with them.Is this the wrong time to plant them outside?

Do you want to see more picture's of all the plants i have? I don't want to kill any of them by putting them out to early or at the wrong time!!! I will go take more pictures of them all & download them,be back in a few!!!

Here's some more picture's. Some of the leaves are smooth others aren't.The one plant a dog decided to eat it and i didn't know if it would live but it's budding!!

There are 2 other plants that were in a mixed pot i bought and the only plants i can't ID are these 2,the only plant on the label i can't figure out which plant or plants 1 goes to and it's Sedum Variegatum.If anyone thinks these 2 may be sedums please let me know!!! I am going to put them on the ID forum also.

1st. the upright sedum

Photo no. 7 and 8 from the top looks like a Crassula capitella 'Campfire' ..or some kind of Crassula succulent.

This is the Crassula capitella ' Campfire' that I have, this photo taken in April 2012, springtime, when it feels cold, it turns red.

there was a crassula campfire on the label but i never imagined that was what it was.I thought jade when i seen crassula my bad huh!!!there was 2 crassula's the other Gullum i easily picked out.

I am a little confused it turned red or 1 piece did when it was exposed to sun.I will research it but do you know what zone it's cold hardy to?? I don't know if i need to put it in a pot,hanging basket or what to do with it.I bought a pot of perennial succulents but it didn;t give a zone or care info.

The babies that grow under the leaves,i removed some & rooted them to make a pot for myself.I will look it up and look for care info but any advice is welcome.What do i pot it in, cactus,succulent mix?

What do you do with the babies will the continue to grow until they hang like a spider plant?

Crassula campfire grows vining downward. I made the mistake before of trying to tie them hoping it will creep up hehehe..so I ended up moving it to a basket. It turns red a lot especially when it gets stressed usually in my case here, when it is really cold and sunny. It can easily overrun other succulents, so I do not mix it with other plants.

All my succulents are in fast draining cactus soil which I further augment with perlite, so it is really open and not compact too much. Recently I found another media called akadama soil, used mostly in bonsai, and I find them good for the succulents too.

The baby plants, I just let them be, or I cut the stalk and stick it again inside the same pot or put in another pot. Big Grin

My hubby took me to town saturday,thats a treat sometimes since we live about 50 miles from any city big enough to have a lowes,home depot etc...Lowes had some upright sedum spectabile,i got one called Pink Bomb Sedum and one Neon Sedum.Some of the pots had fallen over & they had a lot of broken stems which i was able to get to bring home to root.I came out pretty good at lowes.

When looking at the tags there are some differences between the 2 plants, the neon sedum was labeled with an average height & width of 24" and the only thing under pruning is to removed dead stems in spring & fertilize in the spring.growth rate fast.
The Pink Bomb Sedum,average height & width is 12",prune after flowering,fertilize spring & summer,growth rate medium.

So the neon must die back in winter & pink bomb must not die back in winter to need pruning after it blooms.Will take a picture to post after i get them in the ground & they all are blooming nice.

The Neon does go dormant in winter. I leave the dead stalks for wild life to feed off the seeds. At the first hint of new growth peaking through the soil in spring I carefully cut out all the dead stalks. It is so much fun watching them poke out of the ground in spring. I also like the winter interest of the dead stalks. It is a personal preference, some people don't like it. : )

Pink Bomb should also be winter dormant and can be handled the same as Neon.

Can't wait to see photos Jelinda. What a great day at Lowes. Hurray!

I read about pruning the ones that don't go dormant,do you prune yours? It would make the plant bushier pruning it right? Which way do they grow and look better,pruned or left to grow on their own.

I am glad i paid attention to the height of the plants on the label.I will be sure to put the neon in a place it won't be in front of shorter plants.

Most sedum will make lots of new growth if you prune them when they are finished blooming. I just give them a hair cut.
Sedum spurium 'Ruby Mantle' is one of them that will benefit from a hair cut.

You need to research each type of sedum before pruning/trimming.

Speaking of fall pruning.

This is the clump of sedum Jutumn Joy you sent me this spring.

It just sat there for a long time but has really begun to take off recently.

Should I remove the dead stalks? No plums this year but am hoping for next.
I'm all ears!
