I found a landscape company that has opened to the public & is calling itself a nursery.Empty green house, but i found 2 sedums.
"Dwarf Stonecrop" Sedum makinoi 'Limelight'
Thumb of 2013-05-01/jojoe/315546
Stonecrop Sedum rubens 'Lizard'
I'm not sure the tag on this one is correct,the picture doesn't look so much like the plant.Any opinions?


A green thumb comes only as a result of the mistakes you make while learning to see things from the plants point of view!!

Jelinda, it looks like it might be correct. Growing conditions and time of year can make it look quite different. http://www.google.com/search?q=sedum+lizard&tbm=isch&tbo=u&s...

Hey Jojoe, our local ace hardware store purchased the small nursery across the street from it and has been pretty good stocking it up. Their succulents looked terrible because I don't think they made the connection regarding hardy and non-hardy succulents. I hope your new discovery does well for you like stocking up that greenhouse. I know that some small nurseries have gone out of business because of the big box stores but you can't beat the charm of a small nursery owned by somebody who has the passion for all that they are watering and pruning and selling.
