It is very beautiful. Do you have a photo of the leaves of the plant? I would love to see what they look like.
How long have you had this plant? And how difficult would it be to grow in the Pacific Northwest with our wet winter/spring seasons?

Hi Lynn,
yes, I do--not decent ones though

that there is a little volunteer seedling that sprouted up this year.

It is a really cute and short succulent looking thing. The expanding patch of it in this area was originally planted in spring last year.
I had it in another garden for a few years but it got smothered out by aggressive sedums. In my experience, I find that it likes full sun and no competition. I cannot imagine that it would be anymore difficult for you to grow than your extensive and fabulous semp collection Lovey dubby
We get a lot of snow here and have pretty soggy springs, and it does fine with that in well drained areas.

Rick has seeds galore
The thread "What's wrong with this picture?" in Rock Gardens forum
and I'll just bet he would gladly share
if not, let me know and I will see if I can collect some for you.
ps- it does go dormant, die back, and disappear in the winter here so if it does that for you it does not necessarily mean that it is dead

Oh my, that photo really fascinates me. I got my first Phemeranthus last year. It did make it through our very cold winter (5°F) with no snow cover. Then we had months of rain. I thought I had lost it, but it came out of dormancy really late. It has very different leaves from yours, it's P. sediformia. No blooms this year, sure hope I get some next year.
I'll see if Rick has some extra seed. Maybe I have something I can send him seed from.
Would I be able to put the seed out in the raised bed this fall/winter, and let it come up on it's own?

Yes, I would think so. Mine especially likes to germinate between rocks.
(PNW--months of rain--yeah, that is quite a bit more precipitation than I can relate to)
