I'm in Pittsburgh for a conference and stopped by the Phipps to look at their spring flower display and found the nicest picture "frames" and topiary lined with succulents and sedums

Very nice. Are you going to try to make some treehugger?

I wish I had enough Sedums to make even a small one but no such luck. There were many succulents in both displays and everything looked healthy.

I really love the topiary, the frame is beautiful also. But the topiary speaks to me. I can't even imagine how many plants are in those.

Just guessing, but put into the pot, there's probably a conical shaped topiary frame that's stuffed with some sort of screening (?), soil and moss...

You could use a tomato cage wrapped in chicken wire.

Those are nice. I like the tree too. I live in Pgh and have not gone to Phipps in years. I hate the traffic in the area. You have made me think I should brave the traffic and go. They always have such great displays.

I probably have enough of tender sedum to do one but I am thinking for a all winter one, Semps would be great.
