I was using this pot for annuals since I leave it outside through the winter I decided to start planting perennials in the pot.

I picked up a mixed pot of succulents at my local nursery. Already I know some of them will not survive the winter like the moss rose is not hardy in my area. The purple plant popped up from previous years of using it as an annual pot. That is strange because that plant is not suppose to be hardy for my area.

I need weed the little pot. I did not notice until I took the pic that there is grass growing in the pot. Also, the Semp I put in the pot is getting ready to bloom. Will have to replace that one.
Anywho this is what it looks like this year.

Thank you all. I hope most of the sedum last through the winter. I hate that they sell these mixed pots and do not make them hardy to your zone.

Lynn I had to look back it was Summer of 2012. Boy time flies when you are having garden fun. Hurray!
