|Sedum propagation. 10.4.15|
All of the large-plant sedum stem cuttings that I took 8.18.15 have taken root and grown. So it's roughly 6 weeks. They also have flower buds and growth of new stems from the base. This is true for the green-leaf and red-leaf types.
Very cool. For almost no effort, and from 2 original stems cut into shorter pieces, I now have a half dozen new sedum plants.
Two of the leaf cuttings have grown roots. It will take longer to see if they will grow. most of the leaf cuttings died.
UPDATE: These are the other sedum cuttings. Again, these are large - type sedums. Some are the type sold as "Autumn Joy". For the smaller sedums, all that is needed is cut off a bunch of pieces with a pair of scissors, insert the cut end into some soft soil, and treat them like seedlings with a little water and weeding. I've never had a sedum not-grow from that type of cutting.

The plan is that, once winter sets in, keep these in a sheltered place during the coldest weather, and plant in the bee border late Winter / early Spring.
