Gardening in Hypertufa Planters (Ohio)

14,358 Views
I have a small garden here in zone 6 in Ohio. I love pastel colors so that is what I have, for the most part. I also garden in small , medium, and large hypertufa troughs. I love sedums and succulents. Thanks for the invite to join in here. Hannah said the more pictures the better, so I hope I am not overdoing it.

My Coreopsis, I think this one is Moonbeam, grows all over. I even have some in urns because it behaves so well.

This is one of my largest hypertufa troughs. It is four feet long and two feet wide. Huge!

This circular hypertufa is made from a mold of an old Campfire Pit. It was a large saucer and I used it as a form. It has been wonderful as a container for sedums and alpines.
