Re: Spring Gardening

I googled some pictures.  I think S spectabile may indeed be what someone
donated to our display gardens - 4 truckloads of it.  Without a name we
checked photos of cultivars and settled on 'Carmen', which I knew was wrong,
but close.  It doesn't flop. (of course, Carmen - the genuine Carmen that I
have, never droops either).
The one I had a terrible time with flopping was Hylotelephium (syn. Sedum)
'spectabile 'Variegatum'.  No matter the location or whether I pinched, it
flopped with a big naked hole in the center.  Got rid of it.
