Thanks for all the plant name info yesterday! How do you know all that stuff? I can't even id what's in my own garden. So, ok, I've realized two things... one, that container is all Spring and won't last throughout the Summer and two, containers are way too hard for beginner me. I realized that when I went off all optimistic with my plant name list in hand and came up empty handed and confused. The way I approach gardening reminds me of how I first approached knitting. I tried to learn how to knit for about 10 years before I finally figured it out. I kept signing up for classes and picking first projects that were completely over my head, like sweaters. Then I'd get discouraged and give up. That's totally what I'm doing here too but I'm not going to give up. I'm just going to stick to scarf gardening for a while.
So now I'm focusing on one flower containers and on groundcovers. Those, plus our "big project" and I think that'll do us for Spring planting.
I saw this while out the other day and I just love it! The dark purple and bright gold are so pretty.
With Melissa's help I figured out it's a sedum, and I think it's this one, Sedum Angelina. I really hope it's not impossible to find because I'm seriously crushing on it.
