more Pots, NO ID sedum, sedum growth 5-22-17
Posted on May 22, 2017 9:02 PM

Made a new cloth & cement pot, and 2 more hypertuffa planters today. Total of 21 this year.
Tara, Wade & Dave came today Sat. Sent her home with cement/hypertuffa bird water bowl, a heart one, one with scallops, a square and a cloth & cement. Plus lots of sedum for her new sedum bed. Hens & chicks of course. She has a bad case of succulent fever.
Find name of a sedum in my sedum bed in bloom now, it's more yellow than the other 4. hummmmm see how close to Lemon Ball it is tomorrow.
Need more big pots for sedums I don't have potted up, Blue Bird, Sea Mist, Solar Spice, Moon Shadow, Sunsplash,(may need to move to full sun for more color) Athoum, Lime Twister. Twister not doing good in bed this year.
New red stem sedum may be one of those forsteriaum's, rooting where stem's touch soil.
Last years Semp. seedlings are looking good also, showing some coloration. New seedlings are still alive but oh so slow growing.

sedum names drive me nuts. trying to find name of this sedum. TO BE FINISHED LATER UpDaTe Tokyo Sun is correct name.

Thumb of 2017-05-11/chickhill/dc03c0 to me the plant and photo tag do not match. second thought, magnified it probably is. will wait to see if stems thicken up. 5-19-17
Thumb of 2017-05-11/chickhill/761cf7 name on tag Golden Queen

Long hard haul for Sempervivum
Posted on Apr 30, 2017 10:00 AM

Have struggled so long with these beautiful plants. Have at last got it right. South/East side of house w/morning sun only, no all day sun.
Have grown quite a few from seeds. Sowed more seeds this year & already up. Now to keep up the tedious of keeping moist without drowning and molding. Post more seedlings later.
Going to try and do more on here this year. Last 4+ years have been more of a struggle w/life events. Mother's death, my stroke, hubby's benign brain tumor, back surgery, and retina trying to detach. All things with the Lord's help.

Thumb of 2017-05-06/chickhill/c5e09ewatching/waiting/hoping the little tiny tan/rose grows larger. Transplanted last year to this bigger pot of seedlings, very slowwww growing. More green than any other color, one smaller darker green in there, watching her also.
Thumb of 2017-05-06/chickhill/27bb6f 3 more seedlings
