An expanded sedum bed

Potted carnivorous plants
The small bog near our mountain house (with various pitcher plants and venus fly traps) didn't get enough sun to do well, so we converted it to sedums today.

The carnivorous plants were transplanted to a tall glazed ceramic pot and the peat was excavated and stockpiled for other projects.

My gardening companion reworked the bed, fishing out the plastic underlying the bog, and improved the drainage.

I transplanted lots of offshoots from the existing sedum bed (on the left) and with an addition of a large purple Madrona sedum in the center,  I'm hopeful that it will thrive.

  1. Wow! I love the colors. Make such a rich, interesting tapestry. Aren't sedums the best?

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
