Dave’s Garden

In North Carolina, I had a plant I could not identify. I submitted my request to Dave’s Garden and promptly received an answer. Today, at 10:15 AM, I submitted my second request (years later). I’m eager for an answer.  ~~ A neighbor lady gave me clippings and identified it as “Money Moss.” I’ve done a thorough Internet search and cannot find a plant by that name. ~~ I’m “growing” the plants–in shallow containers–for sale in our Thrift ‘n Gift Shop. It is my hope that I can attach details about the plant with the cute story. The neighbor said the plant is not sold at nurseries, Lowe’s or Home Depot; it is shared one-by-one through the clippings. “Money Moss” doesn’t guarantee we’ll have lots of money but it suggests we will never be destitute.

In other blog messages, I have commented that Google, and other search engines, regularly troll my email and blog messages. Today, Saturday, April 9, 2016, I received an email message from Amazon with Sedum seeds for sale. I find their description, and pictures, very interesting. I’ll be looking for those changes in my plants.

    I have purchased the plant at various nurseries and in several sedum plantings. It is common and easy to grow; the entire plant is often covered in blooms at blooming time. I first saw this plant in one of my grandmother’s planters. Do you know what color the bloom is on your plants?

  2. Julie, the plant is a mystery to me. I’m trying to identify it specifically. I’ve only had the cuttings since December. They are still very small. I have no indication of blooms. I guess this is a “wait and see.” For one thing, I’ll put some of the plants out in the sunshine to see how they respond. ~~ I appreciate all the helpful answers!!
