Sedum in old solar light

Posted by jennypat Zone 3b NW MN (My Page) on

I saw a picture sometime in the last month in a magazine, of some sedum varieties planted in an old solar light fixture. NOW that I want to look at it again, I can't find it! I know I have the magazine here someplace, but am not sure which one. Does this ring a bell with anyone?

I have an antique plant stand that has 11 arms on it, I usually put clay pots of geraniums and such on it. But it is a pain to keep watered. It hit me last night that I could do some of the clay bases, filled with varieties of succulents on it this year. But I wanted to look at that picture again!

That is a great idea! I did some research but could not find the item you were talking about. I noticed that you can put sedum in so many unusual and shallow containers. Maybe you can put different pot/containers with sedum on each arm. Makes me wish my yard had some sun. Post the finished project, please!!

Oh, I forgot to mention that there is a Best Succulent Container contest with a deadline in August. Maybe you can enter!

hmm do not remember seeing....but I did see a mag. that had a lady looking out a window in a 'juliet' window. The wrought iron went up to her waist but also way down below the window into a point. They filled it with maybe the same stuff we line baskets with and filled it will succulents. It had both small tight ones and ones that hung was enormous...and beautiful.
