I FEEL AS IF I’M AWASH IN SEDUM AT THE MOMENT, perhaps the easiest-to-grow genus of perennials there is. Compared to being awash in rain, or being beholden to Plants That Must Be Obeyed, things could be much, much worse. And look at the colorplays, like that of S. cauticolum ‘Lidakense’ (blue) and the rose-colored blooms of S. spurium ‘Fuldaglut.’ Yum.
Best of all: Even the frogboys, kings of my kingdom, give sedums a thumbs (well, whatever their digits are called) up. Have a look at some of the colorful faces who ask nothing and offer so much, succulent members of the genus Sedum, in a slideshow of favorite stonecrops.
A couple of them already have profiles of their own here, such as the tall blue-green ‘Matrona,’ and the ground-hugging sunshine-colored ‘Angelina,’ both plants I would order if I didn’t already have them.
