Thanks Spring, I haven't either, but it is interesting! I tip my hat to you. I think I have one of my pots mixed with this one and Angelina, if you aren't thinking there are 2 different ones, its hard to tell the difference! I tip my hat to you.
Cheers!

Update on some of my sedums. This one (name unknown but common) seeded itself in the top portion of this fountain that I now use as garden decoration. There was no soil at all there, just some detritus. Now it is "flowing" out like (ahem) green water!

Self seeded Ogon with oregano in the background. I'll be cutting and drying that before long.

Cape Blanco, seeded in another area a couple of years ago and moved here. Now a nice clump!

Not slate... it had a name but I don't remember what it was. It has veins of sparkly mineral that glitter in the sun.

That semp looks huge towering over everything else,good job. Hurray! Hurray!

That first picture made me think of my S. 'sarmentosum', don't know if that's what it is but they look a lot alike!!

I was going to plant some S. 'john creech' today until it started raining about 6:30 am. I wanted to ask about how much sun to shade can they be in & still grow good & bloom.I have had it for a little while trying to get a spot ready for it & it has buds in the flat,but i had it sitting in a good amount of sun.I have to add compost or soil where ever i plant anything. Will it be ok in just soil or does it need something mixed in it to help with drainage? It is on a slope, my whole yard is a slope.

I read it grows about anywhere & can take more shade,blooms easily.Just an easy sedum to grow but all the ground covers i have experience with seem to be easy to grow!! Lovey dubby

Nice photos Jojoe! I have always just planted any groundcover sedum where ever I choose! They seem to be a very accommodating plant, not fussy!
Hurray!

Jojoe, I love all the sedum growth near the stump...your wish come true, right? Hurray! You did a good job spreading out the plants.
Your j.creech will probably be OK without special soil. Didn't you already amend the soil there or is there other succulent growth there already? Slope is good.
Calgon, take me away...

Thanks Bev,I am not planting the 'John Creech' were anything else has been planted.It's a wind blown spot in another part of my yard.I had tunnel vision trying to plant thing in the rock garden.Thanks to you & Lynn,i have snapped out of it and remembered i have a whole yard to work on!!! Whistling I will try to see if i happen to have the spot i'm planting them in a picture to explain more my 'wind blown' meaning.
Thumb of 2013-04-30/jojoe/4476d4
I'm putting 'John Creech',Sarmentosum,Angelina and if i fine any 'blue spruce' i would throw that in as well,what i have has just started growing this spring it was just a few pieces last spring.So i don't want to take any off of it.

I am putting it between the 2 tree and there is a stump between them but it is gonna have to cover it itself.I am adding compost to this area.It's hard to see the ground,the hubby had cut the leaves Rolling on the floor laughing Does anyone else ride around on a riding lawn mower to cut the leaves? Hilarious! We thought instead of raking them & leaving ground bare the leaves would break down faster chopped up.It's working in most places but the wind blows through there.Should have seen me trying to break that ground up some Sticking tongue out Sad
Thumb of 2013-04-30/jojoe/8e8281
These 2 pictures are right next to each other you can see better how wind blown,it just looks like white sand.It's so hard i can't dig a hole in it,which isn't saying much for me but it's hard ground.

I'm going to have to put a raised bed everywhere.
Sorry so long, have had a lot going on & i've been in hospital,had some catching up to do. nodding Group hug

Cameron, very nice! The blue spruce is going to take off!!
Jojoe, so sorry to hear you were in hospital! Sad I hope you feel better!
In terms of blue spruce sedum, they're pretty tough plants, I took cuttings off of my baby ones and they rooted and are all doing great! In fact it made the parent plants thicker! Thumbs up
You have lots of space to work with! I think doing the idea of a raised bed with no real edge, just let it slope to the hard ground, its the least expensive way to go, and will look more natural in your space (my opinion) To do that you just pile up the compost and soil right up around the stump, all the way up to the top of it - if that's where you want your main bed to be, then you gently pat down the soil on the edges. Most people let this sit for a week or so to "cool" down, but sedums won't mind the heat of the fresh compost (semps wouldn't like it) so you could just plant that up whenever!! Sticking tongue out
Group hug
Cheers!

Nice photos Cameron. Love the blue/green color of Blue Spruce. Greg is right, watch it when it blooms, it will reseed everywhere. Which is okay if you need an area filled in.

Jelinda, hope you are doing better and sorry you were in the hospital. Group hug

I recently planted out a mostly shaded (in summer) rock wall, that I didn't think sedums would grow on. Included Blue spruce and while I was planting anything that fell off, I'd plant...in just a few weeks these shoots are rooted and doing great - they're not very colorful because not much sun, but they are growing, pretty amazing!! Hurray!
Cheers!
Greg
