Confused Need someone else's input. Ordered this as Sweet and Sour. To me it looks like 2 different kinds.
Thumb of 2014-07-06/chickhill/caf3ad these came all in same pot. To me the smaller plant on left looks like Sweet and Sour. Moved the solid green back to the black pot.


Thumb of 2014-07-06/chickhill/94a6cfis the yellow edged, bigger tear shaped leaf one on the right, Sweet and Sour or something else?
Now to the square black pot. That is the pot all 3 plants came in. Only a pin point white tip on some leaves. Are they all Sweet and Sour? Thank You!

Nice plants Linda. According to what I have read this one shows lots of the white coloring when the leaves are new. As the leaves age they can turn green.
You will know for sure next year when both containers come out of dormancy, or grow new leaves.

Let me know what you find out. Then you can add that information to the database. It will be helpful to others wanting information on that sedum. Thumbs up
And also earn you acorns. Hurray!

I see that it was your second entry as a bloom photo. You would only get an acorn for the first entry for a bloom. But you can get more acorns for your first submitted photos of the 'Entire plant', 'Leaves', and other items on the list shown when you submit a photo. Like a close up of buds, stems, stamens.
Here is a screen shot. Lots of ways to earn acorns for the same plant.

SHOOT, the first one I entered is my old plant, many years old. Now I will have to go inspect & compare the "new" one-did not realize they might be the same. The newer one does look like the older one but the growth has been different-longer leaves.
I tip my hat to you. Whistling

UPDATE 12-19-14
Sent MCG a photo of the 3 in same pot as Sweet and Sour.
Email from them today: You have kamtschaticum The Edge – in the pot with the Sweet and Sour http://mountaincrestgardens.com/sedum-kamtschaticum-the-edge...

and kamtschaticum ellacombianum - http://mountaincrestgardens.com/sedum-kamtschaticum-subsp-el... in the separate pot.
This last sentence is her reply to me for asking about getting the sedum on my wish list. Rolling my eyes. Hurray!
I’ll see what I can do on your sedum wish list from your other email.:

Thumb of 2015-03-29/chickhill/610708 coming out, I love the colors. March 28 this year. Hasn't increased much at all. Maybe it will take off this spring.


Thumb of 2015-04-11/chickhill/897db3Wow look at the growth. Took today April 10, 2015.
