Hello...my name is Brea,
I am new here and I am going to admit my self proclaimed succulent/sedum/cactus addiction right now, just to get it out in the open Rolling my eyes. I am fairly new with this addiction as well. My mom used to have hundreds of them when we were little....I suppose it is my turn 😉
I live in Grand Rapids Michigan, so we do not have any outdoor growth this time of year. Plus we just had 12 inches of snow dumped on us do I can't even peek at my sedum right now!
What I can share with you are all my indoor plants. And again, I am just learning so please correct me if I am wrong on any of the names.
It's great to be here and I look forward to learning more as I go. I am ALWAYS looking for more sedum and succulents so please feel free to direct me to the "for sale/free + sh" section. I want more and unique plants and they are hard to find around here. Thank you. Hope you enjoy my photos.
Brea
Ps - I have many perennial gardens as well.

Hi Brea and welcome to ATP! Welcome! It's great to have you here!

Nice collection of succulents. Thumbs up And by the looks of it you'll have many more soon with so many leaves being propagated. Hurray! Love the tiny watering can - it's just adorable!

I live in Wisconsin so I understand the frustration of still having snow. While I have lots of semps and sedum outside (mostly still under snowcover too), I have quite a few tender succulents I keep as houseplants.

Looking forward to seeing more pictures from you!

Hi Chris,
It's nice to meet you! My very first welcome! Hurray! Group hug
I love to propagate my tiny fallen leaves and watch them magically grow. It's so much fun!
I dont know about you but I am so ready for spring!!!! I will make sure to keep posting photos of the propagating leaves and anything else fun that happens with my collection. Those photos were only a small sample of what I do have inside.
I will have to look or your photos now! :)

Hi Brea, and a big Welcome! to ATP.
It is easy to see that you love plants. Thank you for posting the photos, they all look great. Do you put them outside when warmer weather arrives?
Can't wait to see your outdoor sedum photos when the snow disappears. Hurray!

Thank you everyone for the very lovely welcome! I do have a lot of leave I am propagating, don't I?! Look like I may need to share them once they are all ready 😉

Lynn, I love plants so very much! They are one of my many hobbies. Spring cannot arrive fast enough!
I do put them on my deck, when it's warmer, because I have a garden area on my deck as well, along with a really cool old dining set that I refinished, so I can sit there and enjoy the plants and also some yummy food and drink too!
You should see my Terrariums!!!! Drooling

Hello Brea yes Welcome! to ATP! I'm originally from Detroit so hooray for Michigan Whistling
Your plants look good! Thumbs up I live in Seattle in zone 7b or something??
I decided last year, as I was taking my plants outside, that I wouldn't bring them in for the winter, but for some reason, I changed my mind - partly I felt that I could see them better indoors Rolling on the floor laughing But this year I really am planning to leave them outside under plastic sheeting to keep them dry, except for my christmas, and Thanksgiving cactus - those wouldn't do well in the cold I tip my hat to you.
There is so much info here enjoy!

Good morning Brea.
Terrarium. Hurray! I used to have some, but not anymore. I see we have lots of articles and threads discussing them. http://garden.org/search/index...
Are your sedum in containers, in the ground, or some of both? Smiling
I would love to see a photo of your dining set, with some sedum or related plants on it. It sounds like a great display spot.

Hi all,
Michigan Bulb company is selling a creeping blue sedum, listed simply as Sedum sieboldii. The photo makes it look quite wonderful. It very blue with pink edges, and the bloom looks to be a dark pink. Is anyone familiar with this? Grow it? It seems to be a plant that has yet to make it to our data base.

It is now Hylotelephium sieboldii. I wouldn't hold my breath for that blue color in Michigan Bulb Company's catalog. Check out the photos in the database:

Thanks Connie! I'm glad I thought to ask. MBC's catalog shot sure seems to be a misrepresentation. Grumbling Lynn's shot is very nice, and clearly shows the pink edging. But blue?! Not hardly to me.

Hi Sean. It is a great sedum, but Connie is correct, that photo has been majorly color enhanced. The photos in the ATP database give a true idea of how the plant is colored.
I find the more sun it gets the more edges of the leaves color/darken. I have it and love it.
Here is a much better source for it, you will get a larger and healthier plant from this nursery. http://mountaincrestgardens.co...
They also have two other versions of it.
http://mountaincrestgardens.co...
http://mountaincrestgardens.co...

And they charge a lot less. I have bought many plants from Mountain Crest and have never been disappointed it what I received.

@Whitebeard We cross posted. : )

Good morning! Sorry for the late response. I have been battling pneumonia for the last week.

Hi Greg, it's nice to meet you! :)

Hi Lynn,
Hi have sedum outside in the ground ( A LOT....KEEP READING 😉) and I have a thousand planters but none are planted under the ground in planters, if that is what you mean? Do you do it that way?

I got outside, in the rain, yesterday, (it was 45°) and took some photos of some of my sedum that I have growing along the edge of our front sidewalk! The only thing that covers it, during our hard Michigan winters, is the fallen leaves from oak trees and apparently the dogs have been using it as the restroom 😡 Other than that I do not cover it.
Once again, I am new at this. 1 cute little succulent caught my eye at the nursery and now my entire 2000 square foot upstairs living area is full of sedum and succulents *Blush* so when all of you were talking about sedum and succulents being outside I did not realized that I have so so SO much of it! I have been growing it outside for the last 10 years and I didn't really realize the obsession was in me!!!!! Lovey dubby

So of course I had to go outside in the rain and start digging under those leaves and little tiny piles of dog poo (don't worry, I wore gloves) to see what some of my sedum was doing! ;)

IT IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!! I had dug some of it up and brought a tiny amount of it in, in a clay pot over the winter, last summer, but there is nothing like the way it looks outside in the fresh wet rain, with all of its beautiful colors!!!!

Thank you for introducing me to my sedum! We are now in love and planning a garden wedding in the spring Rolling on the floor laughing Heehee....
Here are some photos. Sorry if I missed anyone or anything. My brain isn't working Drooling

Ps-please tell me if I post photos in the incorrect location and I should post them in a different spot in the forum. I am still learning. Thank you.

Yes you are definitely posting photos in the right place. So sorry to hear about the pneumonia, take good care of yourself. We will be hear to help entertain you during your recovery. Green Grin!
What sweet photos of your wonderful sedum coming out of dormancy. Hurray!

Here is a photo for you taken last Saturday. It is starting to wake up and grow. It is everygreen, but tends to look on the sparse side during winter.

Hi and Welcome! Brea. Plus more well-wishes to you. Congrats on the sedum discoveries. It's particularly fun for those of us in the colder zones to see things awaking in February. Be sure to keep us posted for the good growing.

Thanks, Lynn, for the tips on the sieboldii. Of course, when I saw them, I thought I might even have some growing around here. I picked up some sedums last year from Home Depot and others than came in a mixed tray from a non-gardening friend. They were all just marked with generic labels. Home Depot does that a lot! I expect it makes for cheaper going when one label will do for a host of plants. Come spring and summer I'll be taking pictures, and may well post some here for help identifying the cultivars.

They are looking good Greg.
I don't think you can get rid of the Spanish Bluebells. I think once they move to your garden they are there for life. Sad
