Re: Spring Gardening

LOL, Marge, but....
I can use various supports and stakes, and even other plants to help most
floppers, but not a heavy sedum.  This yellow /green variety splayed out in
a 2 foot circle with their tops making the perimeter and a big hole in the
middle. Was not a pretty sight; not worth keeping.
