Ten on Thursday a Hardy Succulent special.

Hi and welcome to a Hardy Succulent special. This is a special blog for Granny from SOS.

I have a number of hardy succulents in the garden mostly made up of Sedums and Sempervivums. It has become a bit of an obsession. I now have something like 65 different kinds of Sempervivum and the collection is growing with a pace. As one of my mates says it is better to be addicted to buying plants than becoming an alcoholic. On a serious note gardening has helped me get over some mental health problems and rewarding myself with new Sempervivums is a good release valve.

The below is just a photo reel with no descriptions enjoy.

    They are addictive! I have a sedum like your Sedum Fudlagut / Summer Glory – there are so many similar ones. I think mine could be ‘Dragon’s Blood’ – they are great little spreaders. I also want more Sempervivums for the wall I am planning next year – what time of year do you think is the best to buy new plants?


  3. Jaw-droppingly lovely sedums! Thank you, Paul. I am contemplating digging out everything in the garden and planting sedums everywhere!! No, perhaps not – too much effort. I suppose my obsessions must be knitting, sewing, patchwork and crochet! It sounds very Grannyish but I often have 6 projects on-the-go at the same time. I do really like the garden but when it is too wet/dry I can come in and , whatever the weather, knit a couple of rows! (Fortunately, my children and grandchildren do appreciate my efforts but I have yet to convince Mr Propagator that a knitted garden apron would be perfect for him!) Thank you again.

    Oh goodness! I did the same with Yuccas, collecting all but one of the known species (although only a few cultivars). Oddly, the missing species was supposedly not all that rare, and certainly not as rare as some of what I had procured. Anyway, yours are more interesting than most of the yuccas, and much more numerous too! There are not much more than 50 known species of Yucca. Some might say there are only 49.
    I can not enlarge the pictures, so must blow up the entire page to see them in detail. Am I missing something. I don’t do updates.
