In this video, we demonstrate how to make a living vertical planter using our star shaped wooden planter along with some tender Sedums and Aeonium succulents.

This is our star shaped vertical wooden planter. Today I’m going to demonstrate one of the many ways to fill it using Sedums and Aeonium. It’s all ready to plant, it’s got some soil down in there, it’s covered with moss, and there’s some chicken wire over it also to hold everything in. I’m using a dowel, just a simple little tool that we sharpened a little bit on the end so that it’s easier to make a hole for the plug to fit in. The plants that I’m using today are: Sedum adolphii ‘Golden Glow’, Sedum japonicum ‘Tokyo Sun’, and in the center when I’m finished you’ll see the Aeonium ‘Kiwi’. I was kind of going with a gold idea, maybe a Christmas-type star. These are mainly Soft Succulents I’m using today, so this is something that would not go outdoors during the winter in a cold climate, but it is excellent outdoors in the summer or they make great houseplants. You could certainly use a selection of hardy succulents for a display for outdoor all year-round. There are lots of succulents that are extremely hardy and can take very cold temperatures, so you could have them out all year long. As far as care tips go, you want to water when the moss is dry. These plants are drought tolerant, and they prefer being too dry over being too wet, and you want to put them somewhere where they get plenty of light. […]

    What (if any) succulents would you recomend for a living wall for outdoor use in Alaska? Are there plants that will survive the cold if I leave it outside year round? If so what kinds of plants would do well and how much light will they need to prevent stretching? Love the video! Love Mountain Crest! Thanks Nora!
