full ignore it and it’ll thrive. Yesss! 

These vegetation have flourished a lot, I’ve added an increasing number of to our containers and landscaping through the years. 

I discovered these simple backyard tiles a number of years in the past and proceed to be amazed at how properly they do with little to no care. 

Oh, and they’re perennials
(which implies it stays alive over the winter and/or come again after) and even
look nice within the colder months. I solely want I had identified about them sooner.
🙂 

I found this simple to develop plant after I put in our cafe patio lights on the
again patio:

Our lights are industrial grade and heavy so we would have liked a approach to safe the
planters so they might maintain the burden.

I informed you then how I used considered one of these sedum tiles to fill each planters. I
figured they might simply final by way of the autumn, however to my shock they have been
nonetheless wanting lovely in the midst of winter! 

I went out one snowy day and could not consider these have been nonetheless wanting
wonderful within the frigid temps with snow throughout them — filled with shade and never
dying off one bit. I believed for positive they might finally fade, however
nope.

Technically sedums are succulents, so it is stunning (to me) that they’re
mainly evergreen (in as much as zones 6 and seven!). Huh. You be taught one thing new
on daily basis!

That planter has extra of the inexperienced and yellow blooms, however the different one has
extra pink and orange:

They are surely lovely, proper? So intricate and delicate, they’re
stronger than they appear! The sparse blooms in that earlier than pic have grown
like loopy and are spilling over the perimeters of the planters.

Additionally they look nice in between pavers on a patio or a walkway, alongside plant
beds or in containers like we’ve got within the again. 

The perfect half — you actually simply put them on the dust. 

No digging, no
shifting dust round. Nothing! 

Simply lay them down, water sometimes the primary couple of
weeks after which begin ignoring them like I do. 😂 

When you’ve got mulch, you’ll want to transfer that and set them instantly onto the soil.

I simply took scissors to get it began after which I used to be in a position to tear elements
off.

that grows so simply and appears so good. Oh, and the value is GREAT as a result of
you want little or no to get a spot began. Inside weeks it is going to unfold and fill in properly. 

Since these tiles with all the totally different succulents combined collectively promote out of the shops so fast, I bought some sedum for our entrance beds final yr that have been simply the one particular species as a substitute of the combined. 

These have unfold superbly as properly:
