I saw someone on another forum talking about brain sedum.

I did a search and did not find it anywhere but on Michigan Bulb site. Anyone heard of this sedum or is it something these people made up?

It looks like the tender succulent Titanopsis calcarea. Michigan Bulb is selling it as a hardy succulent.

The pic of their plant in MBC does seem to match the botanical name given, Sedum reflexum f. cristatum, a crested version of S. reflexum.

Looks like the same plant from this discussion:

Thank you Tiffany and Marilyn. I will keep an eye out at my local nursery. I am not going to chance ordering it from MB. I saw the person that ordered this from them and they said it looked bad and not at all like the picture they showed.
