Lemon Coral Sedum - In our patio pots
I came across this Lemon Coral Sedum from Proven Winners in this video from Garden Answer. I really liked the way it looked in her video, so when I came across it (at the garden center at the Jewel of all places), I had to bring it home. I put it in a few spots including this wine barrel planter that we have set on our patio. Like a lot of other sedums, it is drought tolerant, but this one has a neat chartreuse-y color along with those pretty yellow flowers. I planted this one and it immediately began to establish itself, stretch out and put on this show. Tucked right in next to the Night Sky Petunia that continues to bloom all Summer long, this part of the pot is doing exactly what I was hoping for in this spot. The only *miss* in this pot is any sort of mid-level structure/height, but it is getting close to time to rip out those Pansies and replace them with something more fit for the heat of Summer. Opportunity, right???
This wine barrel container (for now) is on the north end of our patio out back and gets good midday sun, but both early in the day and later in the afternoon is in the shade.
BTW, are you watching Garden Answer's videos on YouTube? I just found her this Summer and now I'm hooked. Subscribed. I watch almost everything that she publishes and learn something. And you should, too. I'm also super jealous of the amount of space she has! Here, below is the Lemon Coral Sedum video that nudged me to buy this plant. But, before you watch it, check out this page on Proven Winner's site where they list Laura @ Garden Answer as one of their pros. She's clearly getting paid by them, right? Did I just fall hard for 'influencer marketing'?!?? If so, I think that's fine and I have to say: well done. Both by Laura @ Garden Answer for providing plenty of useful, relevant and engaging content. And by Proven Winners for understanding that such a partnership would work to push their product.
