Sedums as fillers or...?
Hello, everyone -
I no longer have a lawn of any sort and have planted out my yard with shrubs (especially those that bloom) and some perennials. I am looking to unify the picture with a groundcover that will cover the bare dirt areas between plants that give the garden an ugly, choppy look.
Since there is quite a lot of ground to cover I'm thinking sedums might be a good choice. They are so easy to propagate. I would like to have very low-growing sedums or just one kind of sedum that are definitely evergreen so I can have good looks in the yard year-round.
I'm here in Portland, the N.E. area. Do you have suggestions for such sedums?
Also, today I bought two sedum rupestre 'Lemon Coral.' Do you think little stems that break off could blow around and root somewhere and overwhelm smaller sedums?
Anyway, I've tried some sedums in the past and haven't been so happy with them. Maybe they didn't continue to look good throughout the season, or they were nesting like mad in the crowns of other plants, or their winter appearance was pretty shabby. I think I need some guidance. :-)
