Do any of you recognize this wonderful little sedum that belongs to stilldew (Susan)? It bloomed last year and the bloom was white. Come on all you sedum sleuths, put your hats on and see what you come up with. Smiling

Thanks for starting this Lynn. Here is another clump of the same sedum showing some color change in some areas.

It appears to be one of the S. album. Are you sure the two are the same plant?

I think they are the same, just growing in different locations I had it marked sedum album coral carpet last year, but someone told me it was that sedum I think it could be http://www.perennials.com/plants/sedum-album-coral-carpet.ht...

Here is mystery #2 I am going to check my photos from last year and see if I can find it. My cats are good at hiding markers

If it is S. album 'Coral Carpet' it should become much darker with more sun exposure and colder weather. The second photo looks like it might be 'Coral Carpet'.

Second photo is Petrosedum forsterianum 'Oracle'. Cool plant Susan. Thumbs up Lovey dubby

Looks sort of like Stonecrop (Sedum laconicum). Will go check spring growth tomorrow, mine gets full sun.

Linda I think your right.

Looks close, but I think the blooms were white. I will take more photos as the season goes along and compare it again when it has grown more

I see I had an incorrect bloom photo for the S. lanconicum entry in our database. I removed it. Thanks for the reminder on bloom color Susan. Thumbs up

hi, Sedum Sleuths. Someone gave me this NoID sedum last year at a swap. It's spread quite a lot this year. Does anyone know what it might be??

check these out and see if it is a match Catmint.


I see it is about to bloom, that will help to ID it.

I agree on the sedum sarmentosum. It spread like wildfire, but not hard to pull up. If you plant it along the edges of containers, it will spill over and hang down.

Thank You! I think I'm going to move it to a difficult to reach slope I have where I could use something that spreads.

Mine is starting to bloom now too. This is a tough sedum that quickly covers the ground. About a week ago I had no choice but to push my full yard debris (recycle) cart over it and it has already bounced back!

I moved part of it over to a difficult downslope area I have; I may find other similar uses for it!! Thumbs up
