    This sedum can handle temps into the low 20 if kept on the dry side. If you live in an area with winter rains you can place it on a covered porch, or under the eves of the house.
    It is a combination of being wet and cold that will kill it.

    This also makes a nice specimen plant in place of a tree in a miniature garden if kept pruned to the desired size.

    The epithet has something to do with trees; I am not sure of specifically what it is. "Dendr/Dend" means tree, which fits considering this is an upright, tree/shrub-like sedum.
