I have taken some new pictures of some plants that are thought to be sedums.
I am so sorry about the pictures i take,i either need a new camera,don't know how to use it or it's the shaking of my hands from having MS.Try holding your camera and a flower,plant etc up and take a picture with a hand so cramped it's in a fist. Shrug! I'm sorry if that was to much info and it probably was I'm sure!!!

Thank you for helping to ID my plants!!! It's a nice group of people around here at ATP.

Wow Jelinda, these photos are pretty good. Great job. Thumbs up
I have the shaky hand syndrome also. Not sure why. Some days are worse than others. Sad

When it is really bad I make myself get the tripod out, it is such a nuisance though. Rolling my eyes.

The first two photos are of an upright type sedum, could be something like S. 'Autumn Joy'? Will be able to tell more when it blooms. It is looking a little leggy, like it is getting to much shade, they do best in full sun. The stems will grow thicker and stand upright with full sun.

I still agree with CAKnapp, that it is Sedum sarmentosum. Stringy Stonecrop (Sedum sarmentosum)
Keep an eye on it and take photos when it blooms. We'd love to see if it has the signature yellow flowers.
Keep up the good work.

The upright type sedum is in a pot way to big.I want to put it in a pot that fits it with a good draining soil.It is leggy, that was one thing i was trying to show you in the pictures.You think if i re-pot it,baby it in a sunny window a week or two before putting it back out it will stand on up.Is the period of rest after the re-pot necessary with this plant?

Any advice on re-potting this plant.Shallow roots (shallow pot) likes root bound or not etc...

What do you fertilize your succulents with? i use a different NPK depending on the plant.I use 20-20-20,15-30-15 and the regular MG house plant food can't remember it's npk.I bought some fertilizer for succulents and cactus and it's a 2-7-7.I also feed all my plants when i fertilize them with super thrive.
What's your opinon or anyone's opinion. Group hug

It will grow nice big roots, so I wouldn't pot in in a smaller container. I also do not fertilize mine, just grow them in healthy soil. They also shouldn't need to be brought indoors. It may not do very much this year. It will go dormant in the winter and come back nicely in the spring. They do not want to be root bound.
To much fertilizing can make them have weak growth.

These have never been fertilized.

Lynn,Thanks a lot!!

Should i change the soil and keep it in the same size pot? Will placing it in full sun cause the real leggy one to stand up straight?I didn't realize it was a perennial here.Should i just put it in the ground in full sun and hope it stands up straight.

They take full sun or will they be ok in a place that doesn't get much morning sun but then is in full sun after about 11 or noon.I have been planning on putting a garden in this spot,so i have added compost and different things.It needs to be turned over again before starting any planting in it.

The temps are so high should i wait and put it in the ground next spring or this fall? Shrug!

that's the upright sedum,now the (gold moss sedum?) still remembering names this is all new territory for me.I will apologize in advance if i ask the same question more than once, i try to keep notes because of having MS i have brain lesions and they mess with my memory.

Is the gold moss sedum a perennial here as well?? Can i put it in the ground and have it come back next year? If so when do i do that?

I'M OFFICIALLY HOOKED Hilarious! went to lowe's last night and they had pots of succulents marked down to $1.I went to take picture of what i got and wouldn't you know it Rolling my eyes. the batteries on my camera were dead, charging them now.

First question: In the ground will be best, in full sun. It won't look like much this year, but next year when it comes out of dormancy it should grow straight and tall. It will also start to increase the size of the clump with each year. Won't take long once it has room to grow.

Your new planting area should work well. Mine get morning shade then sun the rest of the day.
Put it in the ground this year, just keep it watered. Not soggy, just treat it like you would any of your other new perennials. Even if it struggles this year, it will rebound from the roots. They are very tough plants.

I don't have the your other sedum, but did some research on it. We are calling it by an incorrect common name. It is not gold moss sedum Sedum (Sedum acre)

Yours is Sedum sarmentosum Stringy Stonecrop (Sedum sarmentosum) with a variety of common names, one of which is Yellow Moss Sedum.
You can see the difference between the two types of sedum.
This is a very hardy sedum as you can see by the entry in the data base. You can put it in pots, in the ground, it will reseed itself when it blooms. You don't have to worry about this one either, it is more than hardy in your area.
I think I need to find some of that one to put in my creek wall. Lovey dubby

Are the batteries charged yet? Whistling
Waiting for those photos. How exciting.
