DSCF3709.JPGIf you could see my yard and house you’d find out quickly that I really, really love plants, but there are some plants I love more than others. Hostas are one, and we ripped up the little patch of grass in front of the house and have been turning it into a hosta garden.

Another I love is sedum. When the FFA had their plant sale a few years ago they had a lot of stuff left over that didn’t sell that they gave me a whole flat of young sedum plants that immediately came to live in our back yard, and they’ve been thriving ever since. They are all up now and looking very well. They’ve tolerated an amazing variety of conditions in the years we’ve had them, ranging from near flood to drought and are still hanging in there.

  1. I too enjoy the sedum that grows on our front. My mom received a portion of the plant from a neighbor…..40 years ago…, and as you indicated this gorgeous plant can survive quite a bit! Thank you for sharing!!!


  2. I love the creeping sedums. I’m tempted to grow some in a pot a strawberry pot, but they tend to be expensive and I have doubts about their ability to live indoors for the winter. (or more accurately, my ability to keep them alive for the winter.)


    1. I’ve seen prices bounce all over the place for them depending on where you live and the variety of the plant. I don’t know how they would do indoors. The variety I have wouldn’t work. They quickly became enormous. At the height of summer they’re about two – three feet across and three feet tall
