Nursery Purchase, including Sedums

Last Wednesday, March 27, the co-gardener and I visited a nursery. Prices have gone up since last year, and our coupon wasn’t that great, so we bought almost entirely plants in the little 4-inch pots. For the first time, we got sedums and hens and chicks (types of succulent). I picked up another hebe, for which I actually have a spot. I already planted a purple lobelia and wanted a second, so I was pleased to find that. I was tempted by penstemons, as always, but resisted.

  • Sedum lydium – Lydium Sedum
  • Sedum acre ‘Aureum’ – golden carpet sedum
  • Sedum spathulifolium ‘Carnea’
  • Sedum sieboldii ‘mediovariegatum’
  • Sedum oreganum – Oregon stonecrop, supposedly native
  • Sedum album ‘Faro Form’
  • Hen and Chicks – Sempervivum arachnoideum ‘Spumanti’
  • Hen and Chicks – Sempervivum ‘Ruby Hearts’
  • Leatherleaf Fern – Polypodium scouleri
  • Hebe franciscana ‘Lobeloides’
  • Parahebe ‘Olsenii’
  • Delphinium elatum ‘Guardian lavender’
  • Delphinium “Pacific Giant hybrid” ‘Blue Bird’
  • Deep Red Tall Lobelia – Lobelia x speciosa ‘Compliment Deep Red’ x2
  • Tall Purple Lobelia – Lobelia x gerardii
  • ‘Hot Trumpet’s salvia – Salvia roemeriana ‘Hot Trumpets’
  • Nutmeg creeping thyme – Thymus praecox ‘Nutmeg’
  • Lime thyme – Thymus x citriodorus ‘Lime’

I had been curious about parahebes for awhile, so finally got one. The delphiniums are going to go in the rose garden and the lobelias in the swamp (where they did quite well last year). The sedums will likely go in a pot.
