The only place I have ever seen this plant for sale is at Bluestone Perennials. Like most of the fancier upright sedums, it is not available in any of our local nurseries. I really love the deep dark coloring of the leaves on this shorter of the upright sedums. I was looking for a shorter variety to plant along the front of a mini garden I did in a section of my backyard and Picolette works perfectly.
