Last fall I got some very lovely plants from Perennial Obsession. http://perennialobsessions.com/page4.php
It is a small business and Cynda takes great pride in her plants.

She sure does Linda. And she is a great person to do business with. I was so glad I got to meet her in person. The day I was there she had just finished sending an order to Japan.
Here plants are lovely.

Wow Susie, that is quite a nice collection of semps. How fun it will be to watch them grow into lovely rosettes with hopefully many offsets this growing season.
They are lovely. All those little semps to care for, what joy that is. Lovey dubby

Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! I just have to share with you all. I had the most amazing afternoon with Cynda Foster of Perennial Obsession today. She came over and brought me these amazing plants AND a beautiful Stewartia tree. This is one of my all time favorite trees, it has the most wonderful bark and beautiful white flowers. It has a new home in my little woodland. I just love this tree.

Here are the semps she brought me. Lovey dubby
S. 'Red Lion'-S. 'Bernstein'



S. arach. 'Mona Lisa'--S. 'Allison'


Wish you all could meet her in person.

I saw it for the first time last year. Imagine my surprise when she brought it yesterday. It is very different in color from my other semps, it will be fun to watch it throughout this coming year.
I think she is going to try some new ideas in the future on how she uses her beautiful green house. Can't wait to see what she will do. She is such a creative person. My above photos do not do justice to her wonderful gardens.

I think I'm finally in the right spot :)
I also placed an order with Perennial Obsessions too ! It is not so much not wanting to admit to doing both at once as fear that I would spell it wrong.
The plants look great, and yes, Cynda seemed like a real nice person to work with. I basically admitted to wanting to steal her idea from the main photo on her website, and she readily gave me all the names.
The order was:
s. confusium
s. tetractinum
s. elizabeth
s. plachyclados (sp?)
s. pluricauleza.... (sp) I think these bags were probably hard to write on, I'm just copying the bags right now.....
s. florifernum ( a long name that's something like weihenstephaner gold)
and s. raspberry red because I could just not resist.
I should be able to find some little NOID red ones to get her look.
I will get hubby's help with a photo once they have had a chance to adjust and chill out in their new pot.
Do you guys find they do OK crowded? I find myself stuffing lots into a container, but maybe that is not best.

Wow, Sherri that is an awesome list.
Cynda will be so pleases to know you are happy with the plants from her. : ) That is such a beautiful photo of mixed sedum on her home page. How could you ask for anything prettier?

I love the color of Sedum spurium 'Raspberry Red', it is stunning. First time I've seen that one. Lovey dubby

Love the description of Sedum floriferum 'Weihenstephaner Gold'.
