THE COMING OF THE BLOB
Sedums are fantastic succulents that are low maintenance, drought hardy and provide interesting year-round foliage colour.
Plant Growers Australia (www.pga. com.au) has a fantastic collection of sedums called Blob, including:
Purple Blob (pictured) – attractive clusters of purple and grey leaves.
Silver Blob – compact rosettes of powdery silver foliage with yellow flowers during the warmer months.
Grey Blob – feathery-like grey foliage. Green Blob – rounded lime green leaves. Chocolate Blob – burgundy tinted leaves. Gold Blob – golden coloured foliage. The Blob range are fast-growing spreading ground covers that create a cushion-like mound of fleshy foliage.
Their colours and textures are perfect for creating attractive focal points in rockeries, garden beds and dry garden designs or to edge paths and driveways. They also make a fabulous potted plant.
The Blob range are easy to grow in either full sun or part shade and are dry tolerant once established. They only need watering once their leaves start to soften or shrink.
Sedums need well-drained soil or potting mix and will benefit from an occasional feed with liquid plant food.
