Dark Red Sedum

Posted: 25/08/2014 at 08:56

Looking at Xenox images the leaves maybe very red but the flowers are only dark pink rather than red.

If you want a ground hugging red Sedum, then Sedum spurium Voodoo is a really good one.

Only thing about painting them white is that it could end up looking like a grave/mausoleum type thing.

phlox paniculata

I have to say that I have never seen seeds on Phlox paniculata, in  any of our gardens in the last 45 years. Be interesting to see if they DO set seed. Obviously they must or there would be no new varieties, but possibly not in British conditions.

Please keep us informed of progress and germination rates.

sorry who is this?

Strange, there are two on my ignore llist, neither of which are the ones mentioned above and certainly never ignored anyone on here that I can remember.

What is this yellow flowering bush.

It is a thug where suited. In the end I dug it out as it just went wild in the Prairie, killing everything else on its way to the end of the world.

Very unusual for Hayloft, their service is reckoned to be one of the best.

The Phlox I got were from an offer in Saga Magazine. They came as dried roots, but when soaked overnight and potted up, they grew away. For the price I paid I could not complain about what I got.

Now I would say it was one of the Helianthus tribe, if it is 6 feet tall.

Keep your eyes open. last year Hayloft Plants did an offer of 10 different Phlox for a very reasonable price. They may well repeat it.

We have about 15 different ones, but they have been decimated by molluscs this year, to the extent that some of them have completely gone.

They are also martyrs to mildew in  dry soil or very dry weather.

Help needed please - is this a weed?

They will grow and flower anywhere. Lot of ours are thriving and flowering round the base of trees like that, in deep dark shade too. Leave them there and see what happens.

It was the only plant I could find with the description given. Dug it out ages ago as it is such a thug.
