Hey all!

I need help identifying this plant. I propagated it over the last few years from another plant at my grandma's house and she had no idea what it was either. She claims that she too propagated it when she took a few stems home after visiting one of her cousins in New York and began growing it here in California. It has almost succulent-like qualities in that it is evergreen, feels rubbery to the touch, and has an "icy" sound if you snap off a stem. It does flower in the summer as you can see in the photos. The smaller planters are all stems recently propagated from the larger plant in the back. It's a pretty hardy plant, but I would like to know what it is so I can make sure it's getting the proper amount of sunlight, pruning, and water that it requires for Zone 9 living.

Thank you in advance!!

It's an Ice plant, one of the perennial Sedums, now called Hylotelephium. They are superb plants. This one might be the cultivar "Autumn Joy" which is quite an old variety I believe.

Those are some very healthy sedum plants. I am just now coming to appreciate it as a fall bloomer. I have a small growing and is about ready to bloom.
