The Q&A Archives: ground covers

Question: I have a groung cover that has a thick leaf like a jade plant. It gets a redish pink flower about the size of a quarter. I have asked around, but no one seems to know. The word rose is in the name.

Answer: Kathy,

I can't think of any plant that fits that description. It sounds like some type of succulent, perhaps a type of sedum. I suggest you take a sample to a botanical garden or your local County Extension Office to see if they can identify it with a sample in hand. Their contact info is:
