The owner, from whom I received it, said it was Sedum reflexum 'Sea Gold'. But from what I read here, this is not Sea Gold? Or is there a different Sea Gold?

The white, tinged yellow (sea gold?), new growth does not happen with the initial spring growth. It only occurs in subsequent summer growth.

Not much help here but I believe this is now known as Petrosedum rupestre 'Sea Gold'.

In the database:



The color of the tips appear a bit darker than your plant.

Yep, that certainly does look like 'Sandy's Silver Crest'. It is an awesome Petrosedum, you will love it.
