A Drought Tolerant Sedum and Cordyline Container Planting
This was an "on the fly" gift for a cherished coworker who has tons of plants but no longer has the time or energy to water her collection, let alone drag them in during frosts!
I only used two plants, leaving a spot for her to insert her own addition, maybe a bromeliad, succulent, or some croton to add some height to the composition. Remember my rain garden with the bed of liriope with cordyline interspersed? I originally wanted to use the Florida Friendly sedum but was worried about my dog smushing the plants, so I opted for boring liriope. I can only imagine how a whole bed of the sedum and "red star cordyline would look on a grander scale!
