One of our personal favorites, the Dudleya Farinosa, a Sea Ranch native sedum that is simply exquisite.
One of our personal favorites, the Dudleya Farinosa, a Sea Ranch native sedum that is simply exquisite. The plants were in flower when we divided them, and our efforts retained the individual flowering stalks for planting in the sodpodmod’s. It is satisfying to see the little flowerettes thrive with the flowering stalks reaching for the sky supporting themselves. Others are prostrate and still alive, so my thought is that when they seed, the seeds will grow in their new sodpodmod home.
They are all planted now. Some are planted with iris, blue-eyed grass and occasionally a yarrow which is very colourful. The texture of the succulent with the alternate textures of the grasses or yarrow is also very beautiful.
The sedums will be a mainstay of the living roof for Hedgegate, with the exquisite beauty of the Dudleya Farinosa expressing the full variety in the texture of the living roof, from the succulent flowerettes of the spath and dudleya to the iris, blue-eyed grass and the festuca glauca. Such delicate beauty.
