Beat the Heat with Sedum!
The Sedum family has over 400 hundred varieties to choose from. These beautiful succulent plants are best in a hot dry sunny location. Which is why they are well suited for the hot dry weather in August and September here in the Pacific Northwest. There are creeping varieties of Sedum like ‘Cape Blanco’ or upright varieties like ‘Autumn Joy’. You can plant beautiful golden leaved varieties like ‘Angelina’ or dark leaved varieties like ‘Matrona’. A new variety for this year is the ‘Class Act’ with beautiful dark pink/red flowers. Try one of these varieties in your garden for their beauty and/or their drought tolerance.
