Dark Red Sedum

Posted: 24/08/2014 at 11:14

I grow a dark purple sedum called Posties Pride .  Seems better than purple emperor to me.  More compact 

Also another purple .......cannot recall the name but Xenox rings a bell......with beautiful purple foliage ,,slightly paler with a magnetic sheen to it.  Red buds about to open.  

I think the "secret" to growing the taller sedums is to cut back in late spring, grow in poor or dryish soil, not to allow competitive plants to swamp them  and not to feed.

Sounds exciting Woody 

Having a renewed fondness for sedums right now, ESP now that I remember to cut  them all back by half in May.   Only 4 varieties now but all chunky and self supporting and flowering

I would scarify first if you can do it very soon. ,nematodes should be applied at this time

Miscanthus

Posted: 23/08/2014 at 18:56

It looks a little starved to me .  However leave well alone for now but plant out next spring . Zebrinus, at least mine, has dark green leaves ( gold bands of course)  even now.   

Forester, yes for sure, your big mistake was not plantImg it out in spring.  It would have been double that size, at least, and prob would be floweriing.  Miscanthus  don't like to be left in pots like that ESP durIng a hot summer
