Perfect Plants for the Season: Sedum

Spring blooms shouldn’t get all the love! Fall is the perfect opportunity to add some festive focal points to your containers and flower beds. We suggest sedum for the remarkable array of color it can add to your arrangements around this time of year and how easy it is to care for.

Sedum is an extremely versatile plant, thriving in containers and landscape beds as a filler or the center of attention, throughout multiple seasons of the year!

This forgiving and low-maintenance perennial comes in all shapes, sizes and colors. For the best results, place them in the sun with well-drained soil. They tolerate the heat, sun, and drought very well, but over-watering will be the death of them! Their thick, succulent leaves store H2O, so be sure you are watering them effectively.

FUN FACT: In older versions of English translations, Sedum, or its alternative name, Stonecrop, is translated to “sprouting from the stone” in reference to their grit and inspiring the old garden saying, “only stones require less care and live longer than Sedum” (The Gardener’s Network).

Pair them with a perennial grass- both 25% off in our Garden Center RIGHT NOW!

Hydrangeas, Vines & More Perennials, Oh my!

We realize not everyone is able to be surrounded by their favorite plants and flowers all day, every day- we are the lucky ones here at Greendell! If you are looking for something to spruce up your home and garden or to try something new, a few of our favorites right now are sure to do the trick- and they are all 25% off this month!

Hydrangeas

These unique and beautiful blooms are surprisingly easy to care for, and resistant to most pests and diseases. Most can be grown in full sun or partial shade. They are an excellent choice for group plantings, containers, or borders!

Fun Fact: The majority of hydrangea varieties change color based on the pH level of the soil! Oakleaf (large white blooms) do not.

Perennials grow in an array of colors, shapes, sizes, and bloom times but never disappoint! Once you let them take root in your garden, they will come back year after year, providing a great investment and foundation for your landscaping. Our variety of native perennials is extensive.

 

 

 

Japanese Maples

Japanese Maples are an excellent addition to your home and garden. They offer their beauty year-round and can even be planted in large containers! It is not difficult to keep your Japanese maple alive and well for a long time, but regular irrigation, application of quality compost (made by yours truly) and a location with partial shade are sure to help.

 

 

 

Vines

There are so many uses for vines around your home and garden from accenting a fence, trellis, or lamppost to blending your scenery or hiding an eyesore. The flowers of a blooming clematis add a pop of color in the midst of a versatile vine!
