Sedum and Stonecrop in Footed Bowl

I put together this sedum and stonecrop medley in the spring. I found the footed resin bowl at Goodwill.  I was going to paint it, but then I left it weathered.


I half buried the base in the soil for stability.  It adds some nice height and makes it look like it is spilling over with the other succulents around it.


Once it’s in the ground, the plants all nestle together.



I like to tuck a few shells in my garden.  I think they look great next to succulents.


Have a nest?  I pierced this iron bird right through the center of it and stakes it into the ground.

These days, I buy most of my succulents at Lowes. They sell them for about $2 a piece.  I’ll buy them in flats and use them for wreaths and clay pots that don’t get much watering.  All of my patio pots on the south facing rock garden are all succulents.  They thrive there with little watering and come back every year.  So glad I made the switch from annuals.

I think its hard to argue there is anything easier than succulents for the beauty and care.
