I used an old white, enamel wash tub that I got from Freecycle and planted it up with succulents. It has grown well for the first year and some of the succulents bloomed.
I purchased some new succulents from Prosperity Acres in the spring and along with some other bits and pieces from the garden I planted it up.
The spring beauty hens & chicks have a lovely red tint to the leaves.
One of the spring beauty hens grew tall and gave some beautiful little blooms.
The blue spruce sedum all grew really well and sent up yellow flowering spikes.
A smaller hens & chicks called jade rose was also added.
A couple of bits of trailing sedum were added to the sides and I think I need to add some more.
Here is the tub aright now, it looks a lot more full. I’m sad the red tinge to the hens and chicks (to the right) has vanished, but I hope it returns next year. I also hoping that this pot survives all that the upcoming winter throws at it. I’ll store it somewhere that it can be covered in a blanket of snow.
