Is this normal for Sea Urchin to have this much pink on it? Pic made last week. Has grown slow this season. Third summer for this sedum & I don' remember it looking pink. I love the pink cast Lovey dubby P. S. in full sun all day plus all my plants got Alfalfa tea. Group hug

I had to look it up I had never heard Sedum lineare referred to as 'Sea Urchin'. I have to go out and look at mine because I have it in full sun and see if it is turning pink.

You pic looks very pretty.

Hi Linda! Haven't seen you on here in a bit!! I tip my hat to you. Mine is turning pink like that also and I agree with Bev, to me it adds so much interest! (don't have a photo but it looks just like your photos!)

Here is something that happened to me the other day - I plant ajuga (bugleweed) with my sedums because I like the combo! Here's a photo for proof!!
Thumb of 2014-09-12/gg5/35bb36
I noticed that the ajuga was beginning to really take off, so I took several plants (alot of plants) and replanted them in an area that had weeds, but now is just soil...an assistant to my building manager decided that he needed to rake the very next day Grumbling so now its back to just soil and some little weeds coming up Thumbs down The guy also raked my perennial bed, taking out 4 (I had 5) of my blue poppies, which I was expecting to bloom for me this next year! Crying AND he came up to me all happy saying "Hey Greg I think you'll like that I raked for you!!" Grumbling NO!! I did thank him and then pointed out that most likely if there are only several of something and they are in a line (row) or a clump - that they're probably not weeds!!! Shrug! Sticking tongue out

Plants bring me peace and calm, more of what we all need Smiling

Beautiful photo Linda. This time of the year it is common for the sedum to turn pink. It sure is lovely.
Mine doesn't get enough sun to turn it pink.

Oh Greg, how disappointing. Group hug

I looked at mine today and yes it is pink now. I could not come back in and get my camera because I was walking my cat. I am probably the only person on earth that walks their cat on a leash but the only problem is it is more like he is walking me because we can only go the direction he wants to go. When he is ready to come in he turns around and says MOW instead of MEOW and starts back to the door.

Hilarious!
In the 60's we had a Manx cat that was raised like a dog. On lease everywhere we went, even from the west coast to the east coast.

I look forward to you photo Cinta, when you get a chance to go out without the cat. Big Grin

Hi to all. Not had the best summer. Gall bladder surgery. Still battling overwhelming fatigue.
Spent way too much time trying to save my semps-plucking dead leaves, put most of them back in pots w/lots more pea gravel, grit, sand. I know off subject.
Now back to sedum Sea Urchin, is it the same as Lineare? One person said she had never heard it called that. I tip my hat to you. Thank You!

Linda, I wondered why you weren't around. I am so glad to see you back posting. So sorry to hear about the gall bladder surgery. My DH had that several years ago. It took him quite a long time to get over the fatigue. Just don't push yourself, give your self time to heal completely.

Sea Urchin is Sedum lineare. The lineare part of the name is the specie of sedum. Stonecrop (Sedum lineare 'Sea Urchin')

Aww Linda hope you feel better soon.

I had that operation when I was 30 yrs old and it was hard even at a young age. I had a small child and I did not rest and did too much and the incision did not heal properly so had problems. Please take it easy it is not worth it to have problems after the surgery to have to go back in for another surgery.

I am going to do some gardening tomorrow and will try to get a pick of mine.

Sorry to hear about your surgery Linda. Rest as much as you can. Once you get all your strength back, then you can have fun with that "new woman".

It is such an interesting sedum, especially when it takes on that pinkish tint. Nice photo Cinta.
What is that growing in the pot with it?

It is the pot that you and I have. I have everything in there but the kitchen sink. I am going to take out the hardy plants and put them in the garden.

I will bring in the Sedum Sea Urchin because it is not hardy in my climate. I have tried it 3 times. Some time it comes back weak other times it does not come back at all. Will keep the borderline sedums in the pot and store it in a cool spot. Probably in the garage.

I brought mine indoors last week. We won't get killing frost for some time yet, but I didn't want to take any chances of forgetting about it.
