The Plant Lover's Guide To Sedums by Brent Horvath
Sedums are easy-to-grow flowering perennials with succulent foliage. They are available in hundreds of varieties, and gorgeous in gardens and containers. Their color changes dramatically with the seasons—in fall, they are rich and earthy while in summer their flowers come in vibrant shades of pink and yellow. As interest in drought-tolerant plants grows, sedums are becoming a go-to plant.
The Plant Lover’s Guide to Sedums includes everything you need to know about these beautiful gems. Plant profiles highlight 150 of the best varieties to grow, with information on zones, plant size, soil and light needs, origin, and how they are used in the landscape. Additional information includes designing with sedums, understanding sedums, growing and propagating, where to buy them, and where to see them in public gardens.
This book is part of the Plant Lover’s Guide series on important ornamental plant groups. Written for plant-driven gardeners by recognized experts in the field, the guides offer a great education in ornamental gardening and are abundantly illustrated with inspiring photography of both the plants and gardens that feature them.
