It's an Orostachys (Now Sedum) japonicus that I had a couple years back. It went to seed and had no offsets. No viable seed. I love it but will keep to things that are a bit easier to acquire and survive without too much attention.

So what does this thread title mean Orostachy's (sedum) (and also Mark, your comment that it is now a sedum)?? How does one find out about these updates? Will someone post a link here please? Does all the world's plant databases have one main "official source"? Is it in England? I just find this interesting...guess I'll wikipedia it!
Thanks folks
I tip my hat to you.

Waiting to hear from Mark on your questions Greg. That's why I split this off from the Clinic thread. Great time to learn something new.

Good question about a name database. I'm sure it's out there somewhere.

Cannot get the site to come up this morning. Oh well, I can do a google search again, which I did last night.

I see from the old thread that there are different kinds a shapes.

Lynn isn't it looking great!!! I got it in March of this year so I haven't over wintered it yet I'm planning to have it on a shelf under plastic in case of too much rain! (I'm going to be keeping several of my alpines in this way, and hope they don't go dormant, but just keep growing!! Hurray!
