New Plant: Sedum album 'Faro Form'

We've been getting a ton of perennials in over the past little while and that means lots of things that are really nice that I think I need to buy.

Fortunately these are all hardy plants that I can keep outside year round and not have to worry about at all winter and even better most are $5 or less.

First of these I'll write about is Sedum album 'Faro Form,' an adorable tiny Sedum I fell in love with at first sight.

It's supposed to be the red colour in winter and summer (but green in spring and fall?) and stay less than 1" tall at maturity.

Plants like this will make up the bulk of my purchases this year as they're cheap, interesting and can fill small spaces between larger plants I already have.

  1. I really like this little plant. It's one of those great ones that you can just put anywhere. Just break off a piece and stick it where ever.

    I've had to eliminate purchases of plants and seeds (which I would of course plant immediately) cause I can't bring them across the country. So I'll live vicariously through you. Another month and then the purchases resume!

  2. Have you found somewhere in Vancouver then? At least when you do get back to plant buying you'll be in a much warmer zone!
