That is truly lovely Philip. We won't delete this, but will start a new thread. This wonderful sedum should have it's own thread.
I think it is the same as this Caucasian Stonecrop (Phedimus spurius 'Red Carpet')

Thank you Lynn,..i forgot i had left the main thread,..posted and realized too late,..thank you for sorting it out so quickly.
Yes Caucasian Stonecrop ( Phedimus spurius 'Red Carpet' ) looks very similar though the blooms are more red in the picture,..so many of the Sedum have only a slight variation its always hard to identify without having the plant in ones hand.

And the camera can change the color, depending on available light and such.

I find that same problem Philip. Once in a blue moon I get a photo that looks to be accurate in the color/colors. Very frustrating at times.
