What to Plant in August

Discover Our Favorite Garden Accessory to Plant Right Now


We're happy to present a post from Stylelist Home!

Fall does not officially hit until September 22nd, but we are already in August and many of our perennial blooms have been there and done their thing. Perfect time to introduce the sometimes overlooked Sedum plant to your garden to give you that push over the summer edge. The unusual Sedum family, commonly known as stonecrop, are leaf succulents grown in zones 3-10 varying from creeping to upright and almost shrub like. What makes their foliage texturally different from most perennials in your garden bed is their thick rubbery appearance, which is because their leaves are actually storing water. Besides having fascinating leaf structures, they bloom midsummer and some into late fall with a blanket of tight open faced stars in shades ranging from cream to mauve to yellow.

Click here for details on how to keep your Sedum plants alive and creative ways to implement them in your decor!
