The Q&A Archives: What is this plant?

Question: I have a picture of a plant that I took from my old garden to my new house. Problem is, it doesn't look like its going to make it. I have a picture of the plant if I can email it to someone. I am sure it was purchased from Monrovia when my sister worked there a few years back. I could have sworn it was some sort of sedum. But I don't know for sure. Its about 18 inches tall and has a little drop purple flower. Thank you very much.

Answer: Unfortunately we are unable to accept photos through the Q&A. You might be able to identify from the plant using the searchable listings at the Monrovia web site, (you may need to cut and paste the complete url into your browser to make it work correctly)

or at the Missouri Botanical Garden site,

or possibly one of your local nurserymen could tell you what it is based on a photo or sample tip cutting.

Good luck with your research!
