Crying Wasn't me. See above, none of those. Big Grin
Are they out of them Terri? Sad

You can get Dynamo here: http://perennialobsessions.com/page5.php?view=productListPag...
And she has some other very interesting semps and sedum. I love every plant I got from her last year.

I am not finding the other two any where else right now. : (

Take a very deep breath Terri. With all that tantrum stuff you could hurt yourself. Then how are you going to take care of all those new semps? Sad
Besides it will give you something to dream about owning one day. Our is that it will own you? Rolling on the floor laughing

Great find Sandi. His plants are awesome and then some.
I am through for the year, I still have some in trays that I need to get into a raised bed, soon.

He also has some great alpine type plants that play well with semps, but I don't think any of them are on sale.

Let me know what you are interested in before ordering, I may have it. : )

I swear I'm done for the year, but S. Chocolate, Pacific Night, Spinell and 'T'Pol' look interesting.
So, are you placing an order?

Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Ooops, sorry, couldn't help myself.
Those are really great prices for some hard to find semps. They are bare root, which I have had very good luck with, but it does take a little babysitting until they get their roots going again. This should be a good time of the year since temps have cooled and nature is providing some moisture.

I have 'T' Pol, and plenty to trade if you want to wait on that one until spring.
Did you mean Pacific Knight? I don't have that one.
I do have Pacific Devil's Food, which looks a lot like Chocolate.

S. 'Pacific Devil's Food' in Sept., Oct. and Aug. last year as a young rosette. This is a smaller semp, even though the first two photos make it look like a larger one.

I knew I shouldn't have looked at that catalog. Smiling

I can wait until spring for 'T' Pol. I have one tiny itty bitty Pacific Devils Food, so technically I have it, but I wouldn't mind more.

I really should wait until spring. Then I can remove the six potted baby red oaks in the garden, give them away, and have more room for semps.

Spring will be upon us in no time. Besides by then your teensy Devil's Food will be producing offsets. It is a slow one to get going and not a heavy producer, but well worth the wait.

Hey there! I did place an order Tabby....I purchased 10 semps. That was my limit. I know for sure that I bought 'Chocolate'. You and I can share next spring. I would love to trade 'T Pol' with you Lynn. Believe it or not I can't remember the others that I ordered!! *Blush* I should get them next week sometime.

Lynn, I love the way you have Chocolate in the grey stones. That is a great idea for the darker colored semps. Beautiful! Hurray!

That is S. 'Pacific Devil's Food, it sure does look a lot like Chocolate though. : )

Would be fun to grow both to see the differences.

Do you have either one of those Janice? Chocolate or Pacific Devil's Food?
If you don't, put it on your list for next spring's Big Trading Jamboree. Hurray!
