I have one of Chris' wonderful wreaths made up of semps and some sedum - they're rooted in moss on a frame.

My question is - will they survive Phoenix's heat and dryness? What if I dismantled the wreath and replanted them? Or would the amount of water that I would need to give them just rot them out?

Any help is appreciated ....!

Science is not the answer, it is the question.

Well, I gave my wreath away, *sigh*..... hopefully it will be happy here in Tennessee - didn't sound like the desert was a good place for it.
