I've got the hypertufa bug - they've even started calling me the Queen of Hypertufa Lovey dubby

Here's some of my fun projects that I use for planting my other addiction into - I use Sedum, Sempervivum and many more Drought Smart Plants in my xeric garden, and what better way to display them but in some unique garden art? I make Hypertufa Grots, Hypertufa Plant Pot Faces, Hypertufa Fissures and much more - check out my website on rustic crafts for more on this line:

Don't miss the latest tutorial on http://www.bluefoxfarm.com/hypertufa-plant-pot-faces.html Hypertufa Plant Pot Faces where I show you how to make them.

Enjoy!

We will enjoy this...thanks so much for sharing with us! Hurray!

have your tried Purslane in any of your pots? it's not all together drought friendly but it doesn't need daily care either.

I think it would work fine - it's succulent, so definitely. If someone tries it let me know. I'm really partial to the hardy kinds, especially Sedum and Sempervivum, and the one no-one knows about, Jovibarba. They are so tough and forgiving of the challenges I throw at them, all the time looking gorgeous - and you don't even have to wait for them to bloom to look nice.

Hurray! I need to try some Sedum and Sempervivum. I love blooms...color....so Purslane has been a strong contender for my garden for 15 years.
