    sedum

    hi,
    my friend gave me half of her 'autumn joy' sedum, the half the deer ate! i divided it into 15 chunks and was pleased they all survived. 2 didn't even have roots, just a hunk of the flesh. i am continiously amazed at the number of plants i ended up with by dividing the perennials i already had. enough for 4 additional large size 'areas'. like jim i can't seem to stop either.

    have a great day.

    p.s.finally warmed up here, seemed like it was never going to.
    Happy Growing,
    Vicki in West. Mich.

    Vicki, I was searching for "Autumn Joy" and found this thread. I was given 3 Autumn Joy this year. I find that they don't multiply as fast as the groundcover type. After almost the whole summer, they remain 3 in number. I assume they will multiply by next summer.

    Do you know if the flower set seeds? I searched the internet and found that some said yes while others said no.

    My, my, this is an oldie! All you have to do is break off a piece and
    stick where you want a new one. Seriously they root so easily. You can
    even use just a leaf. Let it sit for a day or so, before you stick it in the ground.
    don't know about the seeds, they are so easy to propagate this way.
    Take care,
    Vicki

    Oh, I didn't know that! That is good to know. I am going to try some. Thanks, Vicki.

    Dave,

    Let us know how it goes for you... As Vicki says, they are easy but a stem will probably be easier and faster than a leaf.

    Dave,
    Ann is right about that! Sorry should have told you a stem is much
    faster.
    Here are some of mine. I love sedum.

    Thanks, Ann and Vicki. I am going to try some leave cuttings because I only have 3 plants right now, so there isn't much stem that I can cut. Will let you know how it goes.

    Vicki, you do have a lot of sedums!
