Accent Plant Suggestions?

Post  Michael T on Tue Oct 27, 2009 9:58 pm

Does Sempervivum grow in wet conditions? Morten's last post made me think of it. I have a stone that's had the center bored out by someone into a cup shape. I keep wanting to plant something in but it doesn't have great drainage. One side is pretty low though, but still with a lip so it's going to retain water somewhat. If not Sempervivum, what else could I use that would do ok in wet (think soggy) conditions?

Sempervivum do indeed need good drainage. How about a dwarf fern, miniature Horsetail, dwarf Hosta, rush or mosses?

Hey Michael, I don't think sempervivum do well with a lot of wetness in the cold but mine did fine this summer in full sun with the regular rains we had. I have a dwarf scouring rush (Equisetum scirpoides) that likes things a little on the wet side and is pretty interesting when it's established. For some reason that is all the poops into my head at the moment I need to go outside and see if anything else triggers my memory.
