I am trying to add this sedum to the database
Hylotelephium is being questioned.
This plant is listed as that on the other Plant File website.

Hylotelephium is relegated to synonym status these days and Sedum is the genus to use now.

Also, 'Postman's Pride' is already in the DB: Stonecrop (Hylotelephium telephium subsp. telephium 'Postman's Pride')

And the entry does show Hylotelephium telephium as a synonym. Thumbs up
Sedum or stonecrop work also in the search for Postman's Pride, as does Sedum Postman. Thumbs up

Thanks.I look at Google and their plants are so chubby and lush. I have tried for 5 years to grow this but it always looks starved.
Its important to see a plant at its worse,I think.

I agree Jo Ann. However I don't find yours photos to represent this plant at it worst. Smiling
The ones you see in adds are pushed to the ultimate for larger leaves, but even then it seems that this sedum does not produce thick stands like some of the upright sedum do.
Maybe we should take on an experiment with this sedum?
