This beautiful ground cover is growing in my flower bed, and I'd love to know its name. I have assumed it was a sedum, but I can't find any pictures that match the plant with its flower. Some pictures I have seen have a very similar flower, but the rest of the plant isn't the same. Any suggestions? If additional pictures would help, please let me know. Thanks for any help!

It's actually Cape, not Capo, Blanco and ATP has a nice database entry Stonecrop (Sedum spathulifolium 'Cape Blanco')

Thanks Sue! It's written as Capo Blanco on the first link that Janet posted, but Cape Blanco in the database. A Google search gets lots of hits for Capo Blanco. Maybe the name is wrong in the database? Or is it two different cultivars?

Okay, just ignore anything I say! Had I looked at the pictures on Google, they aren't all for a plant! So, I did a search for "Capo Blanco Sedum" and lots of pictures show up. Same thing happens when I search for Cape Blanco Sedum.

Guess we can add 'also sold as' Capo Blanco for nurseries that carry it that way. Shrug!

Try Capo Blanco Sedum in Google again, only one is spelled that way in the first page, an Amazon listing. If you look at the images, clicking on any of them shows the correct spelling.

Thanks Sue! If you are only finding one listing for it being sold as Capo Blanco, I would think that it shouldn't be changed in the database. Just my opinion though. Not sure how these things work. I'm just thrilled to have a name!

No, just one typo so it won't be added.

I often copy and paste but I'm sure I saw more with Capo, but Cape is probably correct.

Just found this thread. Sedum 'Cape Blanco' is the correct name. It is a species found on the Oregon Coast and was named after the area it was found, Cape Blanco, Oregon. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cape_Blanco_%28Oregon%29

http://www.perennials.com/plants/sedum-spathulifolium-cape-b...

There are a number of different specie Sedum spathulifolium in Oregon, each with it's own twist on spathulifolium. Thumbs up
