Since I live in the Midwest (think cold and snow), will Hens and Chicks survive indoors in a room with lots of windows?  I usually bring the pot into the garage over the winter and take it back…Continue

This is such a good idea.  We have a bad drought time here in central Alabama.  It is called summer!  I have only purchased and grown Autumn Joy Sedum, but it is doing pretty well.  My biggest problem is that I have a lot of shade.  Do any of these plants do well in shade?  My sedum doesn't always the bloom the way it should and I think that is the problem.  I do have two flowerbeds that I could use those that need sun.

Audra, your Angelina sedum looks remarkably similar to what we call Gold Mound Sedum, as mine gets covered in the tiny yellow flowers in Spring/Summer like the Angelina does

Oh by the way that was yesterday. lol

How cool is that!!!

How funny, you told us in chat you were starting this group and I go to Lowes and they have hens and chicks for 1.98......I bought six.

It looks like they may be all the same. I bought some one year, some did not make it.

Thanks for starting group.

This light green is my favorite.  Angelina - easy to transplant, looks great all the time.  It kind of has a red tip in the winter, but stays green.  I need to take a pic of mine now, it looks so cool.

Lyn, LOVE your little pink flowering sedum! So dainty, they look like roses for a fairy!

Gold Mound Sedum (above) filling an old basket and hanging on a temporary Fence.  I always say these things are unkillable!My latest sedum which has these beautiful miniature pink flowers all over it.

"Interestingly, we've grown daturas for MANY years and have never seen tomato hornworms on them (although we have frequently had them on our tomatoes). Knock on wood -- we didn't see any of those vile things this summer!"
