Sedums in June

Might as well, we've done everything else and I wanted to post pics of the sedum starts I got from Skybird at the fall swap. I kept them in the cups letting them root over the winter and finally planted them out in April.



I can't remember the name of this one, but it's tripled in size since April

This one was mine after I learned how to do cuttings from sedums - Dragon's Blood getting ready to bloom

Thank you Skybird!

Hi Dafy,

Nice to see your pics! Im not positive what your second pic is, but I think it might be Blue Carpet. Its either that or Sedum album, the dangerous one that spreads all over your yard when youre not looking! If it has a blue spruce color, its Blue Carpet. I recommend cutting your Angelina down to about an inch above the groundor a little less than that. Itll form more stems and come back thicker and denserand prettier than it will be if you leave it keep growing. Then you can either stick the cuttings in around the base of the plant, or use them to start another/more plant(s)!. My Dragons Blood isnt looking that great right now, so I dont have a pic of it. Yours is looking good! I finally got my latest batch of pics downloaded, so heres my sedums in June!

Sedum kamtschaticum Variegatum

Sedum reflexum Blue Spruce

Sedum hybridum

Sedum Blue Carpet

Sedum pachyclados

Sedum Angelina

Sedum spurium Tricolor

A buncha things! Theyre labeled if you click on the pic to go to Picasa!

Not a sedum, but its a succulent! Delosperma Kelaidis Mesa Verde. This was taken 06.09.09. More flowers are open now, and I took another pic today, but itll be a while before I get it downloaded!

On the leftSedum Purple Emperor, upright sedum. Was a tiny, tiny start last yearshould be lookin good by next year!

Sedumnot sure of the variety. Possibly Rosy Glow or Vera Jamison. This is one of the "sprawling" type sedums with larger leaves than the groundcover ones, and they dont spread like the groundcover ones.

Another one of the "sprawling" type sedums that I dont know the variety name of. Got it from my niece in Chicago!

And last, but difinitely not leastbecause its one of my favorite, favorite sedums: Sedum sieboldii, October Daphne. This pic was taken the middle of May, but its better than my June pics!

Anybody else have some pics to show off?


RE: Sedums in June

How funny that this thread was at the top again. I just came in from planting most of the sedum cuttings I got from the swap. They rooted nicely.

RE: Sedums in June

I managed to take just the one photo for a change ;)

Here are tricolour, blue carpet and angelina:

Sedums and Sempervirens

There are also TONS of random unknown spuriums running around everywhere but I've put those photos up before...last year or the year before?
