I would not think an island in the NW would accommodate succulents

Hi guiltygirl44 - you are right, not these succulents at least. Sempervivum are hardy here, but they are just not as luscious as the non-hardy ones which are used as annuals here. When I planted them, I initially intended to keep them as annuals and not worry about trying to winter them over. However they got so large and beautiful I just could not bear to let them die (first summer shown in the photo). During summer, this spot heats to about 10 degrees warmer than the rest of the garden, so its a perfect spot for them. I strategically selected the most sheltered spot I could offer - enclosed courtyard & under an eave, southwestern sunny exposure. During our coldest nights, I protected them with Reemay frost cover. About 80% made it through fine - the aeonium took the most damage. They really are not happy much below 40 degrees. However the non-hardy echeveria & sedum pulled through fine. I was quite surprised though because we saw temperatures into the 20s and they are in pots. I also have some that are just planted in the gravel, and these survived too. However I think being snug up against the house and again in that courtyard made the difference. The best thing was I had access to clippings all winter and made some lovely arrangements as gifts. For NW folks who want to use these and keep them alive, I'd suggest using lightweight pottery and bringing them indoors to a sunny, bright position for winter.

A long planter filled with succulents under the eaves has permeable cloth on the open bottom, holding in soil but permitting fast drainage.
