There are some very tiny semps out there. Here is one I have that I love. You can compare size with the little slow release fertilizer ball that was in the potting mix. Rosette 1" across.

Another tiny one is S. 'Hookerii'


This one is new to me this year, it looks like it is going to grow in a cute little clump. Rosettes 1 to 1 1/2".
Thank you Terri and Cynthia. It will be fun to find ways to use them in tiny containers when I have enough to do different things with them.

The tiniest heuffelii is J. h. minutim (hope I spelled that correctly)

Mountain Crest Gardens has small sedum and small semps (look under "species" for a few.

Haven't seen it but have read about it. It is an older cultivar, so I do not have a comparison with Kapo or Patens.

MCG had minutum.

Some of my very fave tiny Semps are the montanum group - I have montanum minimum (each rosette about the size of a pea) and the very minuscule hookeri that you mentioned above.

Here's some pics of the tiniest ones I have:

I have a couple more, but dial up is slowing me down!

The montanum minimum is the final one of that batch - as you can see, I'll have to re-write my tags before they fade off completely.
