    Sadly the chickens took out all the columbine last fall when DH let them run the yard. :( So I put a few new sedum/succulents in. Here are my faves. 008.JPG

    Lovely, but then I'm a sucker for succulents. That container is absolutely the cutest thing I've seen in a long time.

    Great planter, I more and more like succulents because they are hardy plants once established hard to kill. Also we have not had a deer eat any of them plus only bug I have saw on them have been spittle bugs that don't phase them really.

    You can even do wall hangings or hanging baskets, granted these are mostly tender succulents but even the hardy ones can make a really nice statement and if you have somewhere you can winter the tenders and, if you live in a climate where you can grow tender succulents outside year round, oh, the possibilities. I have to say I'm just a wee bit jealous.

    My first attempt at a hanging basket, mostly in the sedum family, basket picked up at a garage sale for 50 cents.

    My daughter ended up with it. This past winter I lost most of my succulents, the minimal heat I had in my greenhouse wasn't enough:hit.

    I made a sedum planting in a stoneware pot last year, or maybe the year before, ...I forget. Anyway, I've noticed that the combination I put together has one really good spreader that has pretty much crowded the others out.
    So now it's a mono planting haha. But I don't do anything to it and it winters fine in it's place by the sidewalk, getting piled with snow from the roof and the sidewalk shovelings.

    image.jpg Annette, those are really pretty. I especially like the reddish one in the center with the ruffled leaves.

    I have this one but it keeps getting broken with the kids running by.
