Master Gardener to discuss sedums at Nov. 10 event in Port Angeles

PORT ANGELES — Master Gardener Marsha Robin will share ideas for creative sedum growing, indoors and in the Pacific Northwest garden, at noon Thursday.

The free presentation will be in the county commissioners’ meeting room (160) at the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles.

She will discuss varieties, growing conditions and seasonal planting combinations of this perennial, which has thick, succulent leaves; fleshy stems; and clusters of star-shaped flowers.

She also will explain how sedums fit into water conservation and drought-resistant landscape management plans.

A Master Gardener since 2011, Robin’s growing experience started years ago on her grandparents’ ranch raising grapes for raisins and fill for the wineries in California before moving to the North Olympic Peninsula.

She has a 10-year career as a vocational trainer and has taught her students, local Girl Scouts and others, how to plant and care for sedums.
