About Us

Perennial Obsessions Nursery is a small Mom and Pop nursery located in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. We are collectors of hardy Sempervivum, Sedum, Orostachys, Jovibarba and a few odds and ends. We offer starts of our collection to the gardening public.  We seldom have more than 5 or 10 of any single item, so this site will not be helpful to wholesale nurseries.

Hardy succulents are a very interesting and useful class of plants for the gardener. They are low growing, extremely drought tolerant, disease and pest free and perform wonderfully for a very long period of time. They do well in most kinds of soil except extremely wet situations. They occur in a wide variety of shapes, colors and textures. Succulents grow quickly but are not (generally) invasive. They also produce blooms which can be quite striking. Use them in rock gardens, ecoroofs, borders and containers.

Please note that succulents change color during the year.  Most will be very attractive in the spring, summer and fall, and somewhat dull in the winter.  Pictures in this catalog were taken at various times, trying to catch the peak of one season or another.  Don’t fret if the plant you receive is not the same color as shown in the catalog.  It will be that color at some time during the year.

Photos on this site are not photo-shopped for color, but the levels of light are adjusted. We use a Pansonic Lumix FZ50, which does an exceptional job capturing color.
