Far Out Flora

Messing Around in the Garden


Sedum forsterianum ssp. elegans 'Silver Stone'

Yesterday I got done with work a little early, so I spent some time in the garden. We had a different succulent hanging on this wall above, but it was used to nice warm happy indoor conditions at the nursery. He didn’t seem to like the fence, so I put this adorable Sedum forsterianum ssp. elegans ‘Silver Stone’ we picked up at Annie’s instead.

Free Musicbox Bulb Thing

Free plants make me happy! We picked up some succulents at a cute little place in Morro Bay back in early January, and this musical box of bulbs was included free of charge. There was even a compressed brick of coir included. I misjudged the size of the pot I choose, so I threw some bark on top of the whole thing and set it outside.

Yay for paperwhites!

Pretty, but kind of smelly

I also planted a bunch of new vines we picked up at Annie’s. No pics as they’re not very exciting yet. While I love our ‘rustic’ fence, it needed some more stuff climbing on it. Here’s what we got:

Eccremocarpus scaber ‘Tresco Gold’

Lathyrus odoratus ‘Barry Dare’

Tropaeolum peregrinum “Canary Creeper Nasturtium


  1. The sedum is so colorful and rustic looking. I just love it!!!!!

  2. Love yr mirrow, a good idea.
