|Mark, can I ask which plant your avatar is of? The green is stunning and the pattern of swirl...|

|It's an Orostachys (Now Sedum) japonicus that I had a couple years back. It went to seed and had no offsets. No viable seed. I love it but will keep to things that are a bit easier to acquire and survive without too much attention.|

|Bummer, Mark. Hopefully you'll bump into one when you least expect it...|

|I'll have to keep my eyes open for it, I have really liked it too, but kept forgetting to ask what it is! |

|That really is a great Orostachys Mark.|

|So what does this thread title mean Orostachy's (sedum) (and also Mark, your comment that it is now a sedum)?? How does one find out about these updates? Will someone post a link here please? Does all the world's plant databases have one main "official source"? Is it in England? I just find this interesting...guess I'll wikipedia it! |

|Waiting to hear from Mark on your questions Greg. That's why I split this off from the Clinic thread. Great time to learn something new.|

|Good question about a name database. I'm sure it's out there somewhere.|

Was there a picture to go with this thread. And a database entry?

Cannot get the site to come up this morning. Oh well, I can do a google search again, which I did last night.
I see from the old thread that there are different kinds a shapes.

|Since this thread is labelled 'Orostachys' I'm posting my updated photos here...|
bought this from Cynda (perennial obsessions) in May 2014
'Ed's Hybrid' 9/4/2014
O minuta (I have this labelled as 'spinosa minitum' but in the database its listed as minuta??)
Hoping it stays warm enough for me to get the blossoms on this one - they are just peaking out!!

|Okay, that is another WOW moment. That O. minuta is very happy. How long have you had it Greg?|

|Lynn isn't it looking great!!! I got it in March of this year so I haven't over wintered it yet I'm planning to have it on a shelf under plastic in case of too much rain! (I'm going to be keeping several of my alpines in this way, and hope they don't go dormant, but just keep growing!! |

They do look great with their green lion-maned heads!
