People seem to love them some Sedums these days. The low groundcover varieties are very popular right now, and not just in the areas where they’re cold-hardiness is more important than the mild Bay Area climate, but right here in the Bay Area, where our coastal mild climate doesn’t test the hardiness of these Sedums at all, are they also very popular.

I wonder if I got the grammar of that last run-on sentence right? I could reread it and try to fix it, but that would hurt.

Sedum Tricolor

First up is a very colorful Sedum “Tricolor”, one of the S. spurium cultivars.

Sedum Lemon Ball

Check out the tape measure for scale! It’s  Sedum “Lemon Ball”, very chartreuse, stays chartreuse, doesn’t get red in sun, although otherwise superficially similar to S. “Angelina”, one of the S. rupestre cultivars.

Run-on sentences for everyone!
