Found another sedum I didn't have. Looks like a longer version of Chocolate Ball (why that name- doesn't look like a ball at all). Stems abt. 4 to 6 inches long. Looking forward to see the spring color and growth. Will try to find the wholesaler pot tomorrow to see where it came from.

What is the name given to it? I looked on their website and don't see anything like it.
Interesting color.

Thanks Greg. After looking online I think it is Chocolate Ball after all. The one I bought 2 yrs. ago has never gotten that long. Will keep watching to see how it behaves this spring.
Anyone else have Chocolate Ball that has 6-8 inch stems?

Nothing near that size when I grew it.
When I look it up, it does say 6 to 8 inches tall. But another site says 4 to 6 inches.

I have yet to grow this sedum successfully.

Yeah, for us it doesn't live long enough to grow that long. Whistling

I've lost it three times. I have decided that I really don't like the looks of this sedum anyway. It might be ok for a container which is usually temporary anyway. There are plenty of nicer sedums out there that grow well!

I don't think I will try it again.
But I look forward to watching Linda grow it. She always provides us with great photos. Thumbs up

Mine in the big pot struggles, 2 stems in strawberry jar are hanging down, discovered that today. Had a 4-5 inch pot that did well in part shade and now can't remember where I planted it out at. Hilarious!
If you all can't get to stay alive I probably won't either-2 yrs. still struggling but I will try. Thumbs up

Mine died the first winter. I notice it is not on Santa Rosa's web site any more so I guess it did not last there winter even in their greenhouse. Hilarious!

Mine is in a pot and looks poorly - with the cold and rain, but I think it'll come back, we'll see! Meanwhile the sedum that I brought into the house are looking really good, I'm surprised but now I know that they can't take the cold temps with so much water Thumbs down I tip my hat to you.
