I bought 3 of these.. one I accidentally stomped on, which it did NOT like and promptly croaked like 15 minutes later & dissolved into nothingness within 2-3 days.. the other two are growing like mad. Help? I bought it as a "yellow stonecrop" from a LGS, but no cultivar name.

Hi Ton. It looks like Sedum acre. Sometimes sold as Yellow Stonecrop. Nice plant, and very hardy.

I sometimes do that too! Stomp accidentally, on new plants! Sorry about that one, the other 2 look great though! Hurray!
With sedum all those little pieces can grow though, so I hope you saved some and tossed them somewhere that you'd want this plant! I tip my hat to you.

Greg - I tried that, and they never rooted. I think that where I have them the soil is so poor that it won't even grow weeds, let alone desirable plants.

I took a snippet to a different LGS and asked. They asked where I bought it & I told them where. They wanted to know the LGS 'cuz they know all the distributors. This is Sedum rupestre "Angelina" according to them and showed me theirs. I agree that it's the same sedum.

Mystery solved! Yay!!

it did look like Angelina to me, but the coloring on yours looks slightly more yellowish, are yours in full sun? Mine has orange at the tips.
I tip my hat to you.

Mine is in full sun.. full full blazing hot sun. It gets a little dappled shade from the butterfly bushes but for the most part, hot rocky sun. I love that it's spread a bit. I'm hoping that it'll spread further. They're about 18" wide now from when I bought them as about 8". I wonder if I actually *fed* them & watered them if they'd get bigger. LOLLL

they do grow and fill in so amazingly! So another type of rupestre is the Blue spruce, which is a bluegreen, and it too spreads and grows so well! I have mine in semi shade, its full sun in winter, since around here they stay growing through the year - hooray! You can retry to take cuttings, and place them whereever you want, they should work with no big trouble!
There are a couple other rupestre's too, like Gold ball, and sea gold, which are slightly different but only up close would anyone be able to tell that it isn't angelina!

FWIW, Angelina grows like a weed for me, especially if it gets any water.
Where ever a piece breaks off, it roots so I have it all over my gravel. But it's pretty!

I'm gonna have to try & root some. I have other places they can go if they take. How do they do in partial shade?

Toni, I have the majority of mine growing in shade to part shade, and they do great, they stay a lighter color, but spread at the same crazy pace!! Have fun with this one! nodding (they're easy to pull out if they are in an area you no longer want them!)
Perfect kind of weed in my opinion Lovey dubby
