~~Sedumzzs' Plant Review~~

This plant hates me! It had no problems whatsoever for the first few years indoors, and when I moved it outside it wouldn't stop pouting. I personally prefer 'Angelina', but this variety has more lemon/lime in its foliage, and has more needle-like foliage. I do plan on retrying with different soil mixes.

Rating: 2/5

This plant can be hardy to zone 8 if kept protected from too much winter rain. If it is overly wet, freezing temps will kill it.
