Okay, I'm probably dating myself by posting this, but does anyone remember Devo?

Here's my Devo hat planter

Devo planter of Sedums and Hens & Chicks

BTW, all of the Sedums and Hens & Chicks came from cuttings that Skybird gave me. I think they like their new home : )

See link below for photo of the original.

RE: Devo hat planter

NICE!! I remember DEVO.

I think all of my sedums - from Skybird and you - are loving their new homes. I also got a teeny hens and chicks from Skybird that's lovin' life.

I even have a flower on one new sedum, but that may not be from me. I'll take photos soon.

I have the blue spruce firmly established and I moved it to various areas after the swap. ALL are thriving!! What an amazing plant the sedum is. I have a few that I'll root up before the fall swap.

I am also wandering my yard to find other xeric plants I have. Blue mist spirea and Russian sage immediately come to mind, although they are space hogs.

Happy Gardening -


RE: Devo hat planter

Hah! I was in the fourth or fifth grade when I was first a Devo fan!!

Your succulents look great! I have quite a few (um, at least four!) Skybird succulent starts, too. They are starting to fill out and look happy.

Now all you need is a touch of that ice plant to drape over the edge of the planter/hat!

.....Crack that whip!


RE: Devo hat planter

Alright, Im older than the rest of you, and I went from the folk music of the 60's straight to classicaland skipped all the contemporary music from the 70's on, so I never heard of Devo! But I do like your hatuhI mean pot, Bonnie! And the color goes really nicely with your house!

Glad to hear everybodys sedums and semps are doing well! There will be more at the Fall Swap! Remember to keep track of which "letter" semps you got so you can get different ones next time, rather than just getting more of the same old thing. I have some neat new ones that may have enough chicks to bring some to the Fall Swap.

Anyone else having dreadful sedum aphids this year? I didn't see one last year, but this year I have a plague of them.

P.S. I loved Devo :)

RE: Devo hat planter

I noticed quite a few on one of my upright sedums 'Postman's Pride', but not on any of the groundcover types.

RE: Devo hat planter

Bonnie, I bought the same red Devo hat planter at Lowes! It looks very pretty with the sedums in it. I may copy you and plant some of Skybird's generous offerings in it too!
