Well here we are starting a new year. So much to learn, new sedum to try, and new ways to use the much loved sedum.
I also want to show a new sedum x orostachys that will be on the market for the first time this year. For me it is a must have.


I never thought about using sedum in food preparation, here is a link to the Food Network show called Chopped. In the second round (entree round) one of the ingredients is Sedum 'Pink Pearl'. To me it looks similar to Tri-Color sedum. Can anyone find this sedum?

Let the fun of this coming new year begin. Hurray!

Some of them grow so well that we could have our sedum and eat them too. Green Grin!

I'm not sure, but I think Cynda (Perennial Obsessions) will have them sometime this spring.
I want to see a bloom up very close, to see which parent it looks the most like.

Done, in the data base. I sit inside thinking no color out in the yard. Then do a walk around and a spot this. Hurray! Better than any bloom.

What a wonderful gift of color to find.
I noticed that most of my deciduous sedum have new growth poking through the soil.

It has warmed up here and the ground it thawed out. Think I might be able to work out in the beds as long as I don't disturb the plants. There are a few winter weeds coming up. I might have to wait until tomorrow, as it is suppose to rain all day today.

We're having a beautiful snowstorm today, but the temps will be dropping to below zero for most of the week. Hot chocolate weather!

Bet it's beautiful. Talked to my son in Lake Bluff last night, he said they were getting rain and ice and snow by today. I'm never visiting in winter. Raining and 41 here, Sighing!

While searching for Pink Pearl sedum, I found these two sites, I am finding a lot of interesting reading there.

www.chefs-garden.com list Pink Pearl as edibles for sale. Hummm wonder if I order Pink Pearl I could root it? Will check it out later.

Happy New Year to you Linda.
It is raining here and in the low 40's. I went out and took a few photos. Not a lot to see right now.

There a quite a few that are not showing any new growth yet. Probably not until the end of Feb or first part of March.

Linda, I deleted your first link to succulents.com. It has been highjacked. See if this one works. http://www.succulent-plant.com...

So good to see new growth Lynn! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

I also had a problem with that link but thought it was on my end (glad to hear it wasn't).
