Sedum treleasei, a new succulent I found last year, is blooming for the first time now. It is in the stonecrop family and a native to North America.
It has been rather slow to grow so far; getting its roots down, no doubt, so this summer it should take off. I think it is basically a fat-leafed version of donkey or burro tail, so I am looking forward to seeing how it fills out its pot.
While some stonecrops/sedums are cold-hardy, I am pretty sure this one isn’t, and I suggest protection in the cold winter months.
I think it is going to make a nice hanging basket plant as it grows. Stay tuned and we’ll see.
I have found this plant ‘Sedum Trelease ‘ to grow up and would not do well in a hanging basket. It does good for me as one of the upright plants in a dish garden with shorter and hanging succulents around the rim of the dish.
You are absolutely right, Ken. Mine is in a tool box with some other sedums and it grows up and out as you describe. But it looks nice. Thanks for reading.
