I purchased this in zone 5b and I will soon be relocating for the winter to zone 8b. Until I find the proper name for this cutie I don't know if it will over winter and/or if I can root sections of this plant to take with me. And yes, this plant was properly labeled at the time of purchase but darned if I can find the label now....

Thanks for any help you can give me!

It looks to be some kind of Sedum. @Valleylynn might be able to help

I think it's Sedum makinoi; might be the variety 'Limelight' if it is the lighter green color.

Living in zone 8b you'll be able to keep the plant outside for much of the year.

If you surround the 'mother' plant pot with several small pots of soil the plant will not only propagate itself, but will pot itself. Just snip and share with your new neighbors.

It does look like Sedum makinoi, there are a few listed in the database for comparison:

It definitely is one of the S. makinoi. Could be either 'Limelight' or 'Ogon'.
Growing conditions can make it tricky to tell the two apart. Both are only hardy to zone 6. With some protection it might make it in your zone 5b.
Beautiful photo of a beautiful specimen of a makinoi type of sedum. Thumbs up
Does either of those names sound familiar as to what was on the missing tag?
