The other day while we had temperatures in the upper 60's (very unusual for December) I took a few cuttings of our sedum to use in an indoor pot. Sedums are extremely easy to propagate and in most cases just need to be stuck in dirt to grow roots. I used the dirt sticking technique and put four small cuttings (or maybe I should call these pinchings since I pinched them off instead of making a cutting) into a small pot. In the spring I'll add these sedums into various places in the sedum garden but I can easily overwinter them inside the house.
Please forgive the chip in the pot. It's been around a while!
There are a several of other kinds of sedums in our garden one of which is everyone's favorite sedum 'Autumn Joy' (Sedum telephium) seen here in the picture behind a mound of mums and some hollyhock leaves. It never fails to offer up a bounty of pink colored blooms. We have two other 'Autumn Joy' plants both of which came from cuttings. I used the sedum-in-a-jar-of-water method, which of course is the technical term.
I picked up an 'Angelina' sedum (Sedum repestre 'Angelina') at a plant exchange last year but sadly it disappeared after planting. It was either a victim of rabbits or neglect (since as I remember I was very slow in planting it). At the same plant swap I came home with a sedum 'Acre' but I had second thoughts about planting it. Sedum 'Acre' is known to expand its territory very rapidly. It's still resting in its pot waiting for something to be done with it, any suggestions?
from August. The soft shaded green foliage is what attracted us to the plant but the flowers really do make it worth planting!
