The Q&A Archives: yellow golden leaves?

Question: Dear sirs
could you tell me if you grow a sedum that has yellow or gold leaves, or variegated in gold? I may need about 100 square meters of it for a garden I am designing in Corsica france.
If not, could you tell me if it exists one and where could I find it?
Thank you very much for your cooperation and help.
I know Monrovia nursery because i was a student in LA in the early 70's.
Sincerely yours. bruno

Answer: Thank you for asking. Monrovia is a wholesale only nursery in North America so would not be able to ship to you. In a brief search I came across several plants that meet the criteria. An internet search using the botanical name should bring up photos.

Sedum mexicana such as "Acapulco Gold" and "Gold Mound"
Sedum alboroseum "Mediovariegatum"
Sedum Kamtschaticum "Variegatum" is probably the more well known and has creamy yellow variegation, here is a photo

Unfortunately I am unable to recommend sources in France. Perhaps if you have the name you can source it locally. Best of luck with your project!
