Moving an established Sedum Autumn Joy
Sedum "Autumn Joy"
This is the 2nd Sedum "Autumn Joy" or similar cultivar, that I moved. It must be 10 years old, up to 13. Since I've been concentrating on the Battleground gardening, I have not been watering in Vancouver. It was very dry, feather-light. I wrapped it in a large dog blanket, drove it to Battleground, and planted in front of the house. Soaked a couple of times.
The first sedum's leaves plumped up nicely. I expect the same from this one.
The plant is barely starting to bloom. Even so, honeybees almost immediately found it, and are collecting nectar.
