Can someone tell me what type of sedum this is? Several years ago I was in a plant swap and received 5 different little sedum plants. One of them has grown a bit. This sedum looks like a tiny little evergreen tree. Well now it looks more like a little evergreen Forres, very cute. I planted it by a big rock along the edge of my waterfall and it has sent itself over the edge down to the pond and has dipped a little part of itself into the water. Must have been thirsty. I can take a picture and post if need be. Thank you.
Happy Gardening :-)

A pic may help you get a positive id. The folks on the Sedum forum know a lot about them.

It looks like one of the Petrosedum rupestre. All are tough and fast growing, wonderful sedum.
Here is a list of some of them. http://garden.org/plants/search/text.php?q=petrosedum&button...

And one of my very favorites in this genus. Sedum (Petrosedum sediforme 'Turquoise Tails')

It sure looks like a match to me. I was going to say it looks similar to my Angelina but didn't want to look stupid. Glad to know they are in the same genus.

You are welcome Colleen. It's sure a great sedum you have.

I picked up Sedum (Petrosedum rupestre subsp. rupestre 'Angelina') and Stonecrop (Sedum SunSparkler® Lime Zinger) about a month ago from lowes. I also just got in my 3 sedums from michigan bulb company this week. That's all so far.
