Winter in Massachusetts

Some beautiful color from the hardy opuntias I planted this year and a planter with semps and hardy sedum. They've emerged from the snow due to a January thaw.

Love how this plant is so hardy... Gorgeous winter colors.

RE: Winter in Massachusetts

(By plant I meant the sempervivums...)

RE: Winter in Massachusetts

If happy, the opuntia will gradually spread and can easily be propagated by leaf cuttings. Sempervivum seem to do less well for me.

RE: Winter in Massachusetts

My opuntia are well rooted. They grew some this year, but the rabbits munched some of the new pads. I hope they grow faster than the bunnies can eat them this year!

Hi -

Seriously considering a PIG for my huge pot of humifusa this spring. Just not looking forward to the task of prying it out of the pot and doing it!

Here's a pic of my semps wintering in my cold, New England garage. I have probably accidentally knocked this pot over half a dozen times...I just shove em all back in and they keep on. Tough as nails...
