My container 'Carl' has a strong tendency to loose its lower leaves during the season which makes it look bad but doesn't affect the flowering.

Does it happen to your 'Carl' as well guys???

I used this plant as a filler in a strawberry/herb pot this year at work, and it is working fabulously. It bloomed like crazy and climbed all over the side of the pot. I noticed it coming back already. Just a suggestion--these pots a great for sedums.
