More Sempervivums

As you can tell I love Sempervivums! They change with the seasons and they are super easy to grow. They don't mind our long, hot, dry summers and they don't mind the cold winter temperatures either. They are the perfect potted plant and they also make a nice ground cover. What's not to like?

They look great in those containers Cindee. I'm considering planting some in a cracked birdbath basin this season.

Love them!!! They look so cool in your vintage-ware. You are right. These little gems are impervious to just about anything and that alone is reason enough to grow them. But I have to confess, deer like them too and several of mine in the front garden (where deer are allowed, well not really allowed but where there is no fence to keep them away) have the crowns chewed out. A heinous crime for sure but the interlopers appear during the wee hours. Grrr. My consolation is that my backyard hens and their babies are safe.

Hi blossom,
Thanks(-:

Hi Jacque,
I would love to see your place(-: I am sure I would love it!

Hi perennialgardener,
That would be a great place for planting semps! They really do well for me. There are so many different ones to choose from too. It will be fun to see what you do with your birdbath!

Hi Grace,
Oh those naughty deer! A friend of my daughters told me to put a radio in the area where you have a deer problem. Tune into Talk Radio. (It has to be Talk Radio)I tried it and I didn't have a problem anymore.(-: One summer I had three radios going all night long...lol It worked though so I kept doing it! I put them on timers so I didn't have to worry about turning them on or off(-:

Oh Cindee, I love your water can pots or is it a water can tipsy? Great idea.

Hi Hocking Hills Gardener,
The old watering cans and buckets are part of my waterbed pond fountain. I did have a tipsy bucket display made out of old buckets though(-:

You are the queen of vintage container plantings Cindee!!! I have loved all I've seen here lately. I really need to utilize mine more than I do (which is normally just to sit them around!!)
