It is time to start celebrating our much loved sedum for the year 2016.
We have had a rather mild winter here so far, many of the sedum are already starting to show signs of growth.
This one puts on a spectacular winter show with it's intense colors. There isn't a time of the year that it isn't a stand out. That is Petrosedum sediforme 'Turquoise Tails' to the left, tips I stuck in the ground the beginning of December. Looks like they are already well rooted.


Sedum album on the left and Petrosedum rupestre subsp. rupestre 'Angelina' on the right.

I have some new sedum from last fall purchase. I'll try to get photos of them tomorrow. They also are evergreen.
Most of the dormant types are already showing new growth poking through the soil.

Gee, I covered almost all my sedum, not knowing what the 30 degree temps were going to do to them. I can just imagine uncovering them in early Spring and seeing them all alive (?) but with no coloring because they haven't seen the light of day(?)... Crying

Thank you Greg.

Bev you can uncover them now. As you can see they do just fine. At least the hardy types.

I'll try to get more sedum photos today, between the rain showers. There a lots of different ones out in the beds and they are beautiful this time of year.

Love the pictures! Gold Select has great coloring. Is it as robust as 'Angelina'?

It is just as hardy, but somewhat sturdier, with more year round color intensity. Both are in the same Petrosedum rupestre species. Gold Select rarely blooms in my garden, Angelina blooms heavily every year. I need to pay attentions this year to the bloom stalks and do a comparison.

I don't know which are the "Oregon hardy" types yet. I also have sedum planted with tender succulents so need to keep the covering on for those tenders. I'll see how things survive and look when the temps go a little higher and I can water them too. Remember all my stuff are on the balcony where the rain doesn't hit.

I keep forgetting that Bev, about the balcony. *Blush*

It hasn't stopped raining yet. And I want to get out and take more photos of other hardy succulents growing out in the beds.

A little box I bought at the garden club sale 2 years ago. Planted some sedum in it from Phocas Farms.

Close up shots of plants in the box. Pleasantly surprised at how well things look even after all this rain. I think another storm is headed this way, enjoy while you can.

Great photos of a neat planter box, Julia! Can I assume that the above sedums are hardy enough (for the outdoor winter) or were they in a protected area?

Hurray! I am so excited, I took photos of some of the sedum that are coming out of dormancy. It won't be much longer before they start growing actively. Hurray!
