This wonderful tiny sedum is a New World Plants introduction. According to their information it is not a hardy sedum, and it will not survive freezing temperatures. I will try keeping some on my covered deck during our zone 8 winter to see whether it will tolerate a dry/cold winter.

This sedum started blooming for me in July. It seems that it has a very long bloom period. It is easy to miss the fact that it is in bloom or in bud, due to the fact the the flowers are extremely tiny. It is well worth the effort to use a magnifying glass to take a close look at the beauty of the flower. Very free flowering once it gets started in the bloom cycle.
Thank you, chickhill, for this very special plant.

Today, 11-23-14 found a green stem growing. Pulled and potted to see whether it turns out to be the NOID one I bought that looks like Missy, only green.

I bought this in 2018 from Mountain Crest Gardens who listed it on their website as being hardy to zone 5. I'm seeing different information here and on other websites, as well as one other site selling this plant who also lists it as hardy to zone 5. I've already planted it in my zone 5 rock garden so I'll just have to wait and see. Will update this comment next spring.
