A new and distinct hybrid Sedum named `Thundercloud` characterized by pointed or fingered foliage, white flowers and a larger height compared to the seed parent. The new Sedum was raised as a seedling from open pollinated seed sown as an unknown Sedum tatranowii, not patented, at Intrinsic Perennial Gardens in Hebron, Ill. in 2005. The selection of the new plant was due to its' larger pointed foliage, larger white flowers and a taller height compared to the seed parent. Initial asexual reproduction has taken place at a nursery in Hebron, Ill. since 2006 by means of division, and vegetative cuttings. The new Sedum has shown to be stable and identical in reproduction to the parent after rooting over 1900 plants from 2006 to2009.

Patent PP21833 Issued on March 29, 2011. Estimated Expiration Date: Icon_subject July 7, 2029.
