Next, succulents. Japanese summer is torture for many of succulents born in foreign countries. Especially, ones planted on the ground.
多くのセダムが蒸れ死んで逝った。一部はダニなのか蜘蛛の巣状の糸だらけ。 殺ダニ剤も撒いたが、こんな時はローテーションだな。 傷んでしまった吹上は弟分と一緒に鉢植えで養生。 隣も養生中のアガベ。
Many sedums were steamed and died. Some of them were surrounded by silk of spiders or mites. Spraying pesticide is not enough, rotation is needed at the time like this. Damaged Agave stricta was planted in a pot and will be nursed. The smaller pot is also Agave in nursing.
Instead I planted an Agave that has been hardy during summer and winter, and aromaticus that I don't know about winter hardiness.
This is a newly bought Crassula capitella. I expect it is heat and cold hardy without any proof.

While replanting, I replaced surface soil that was very fine with course grain porous sand. This may prevent needle ice, too.
Aeonium that bore shade and water-less summer became tattered. The worst is sunburst. WTH!!

The others were almost surviving, cut some branched, dried them a week, and made into an artistic? group planting.
