Sedum     

My new neighbors are removing (!!!) the gorgeous 20-year-old garden next door, because they like “a nice long stretch of grass.” Unbelievable. Fortunately, rather than just killing everything in the garden, they allowed me to come in and save whatever I wanted. I got these beautiful sedum plants, some peonies, privet, several rose bushes (again, !!!), and some sage.

This planting is in the Perennial Border garden.

From a swap with Neigbor.
