Everyone has done such a great job at helping me identify a few others. Hope someone can help with this one. It is a slow growing ground cover. Does not flower.

@pirl Thanks! I'll start looking there and perhaps I can figure out which one.

You could take a piece of it on your trip to the nursery.

Good Idea! I will do that. Not sure why it didn't dawn on me. *Blush*

Try this one, Stonecrop (Phedimus spurius 'John Creech'), though it looks different to me in each photo. When I went to Wikipedia the entire page came up in Spanish, which was of no help to me!

That looks like my glechoma hederacea/Creeping Charlie. When it is in full sun the leaves get thick. But mine flowers, long stems with itty bitty white wth purple flowers in the late fall. Mine is in a hanging pot. It was a very popular plant in the 70's but hard to find now....that and Piggy Back Plant.

It does look like one of the Sedum spurium varieties, but hard to tell which one. There are several that look very similar until certain times of the growing season. You will have to keep taking updated photos to see which one it is.

John Creech is much smaller leaved than most other S. spurium varieties.

Stonecrop (Phedimus spurius 'John Creech') looks close but the leaves look thicker than mine. I will keep taking photos of it as the season goes. I don't remember it ever having flowers. If I take a piece to the nursery with me also I might accidentally find it, lol.

It would still be difficult to match it up, because of the different growing conditions. Only time, through this growing season may revel the correct ID. Do you remember where you got it from?

How long have you had it? Do you remember if you bought John Creech from them? They should be able to help you ID it, they will know which ones they had at the time you bought yours. Smiling

It's probably been at least 3 years (may be more) ago. That's where I usually buy most of my plants unless on line.
