I moved a Sedum to the new house.

It is a upright Sedum like Autumn Joy.

I remember the name as Sparkle. I searched and cannot find a Sedum with that name.The flower head is white and pink.

Does it sound familiar to anyone?

Could it be one of the SUNSPARKLER sedum?
There is Dazzleberry, Cherry Tart, Lime Zinger, Blue Pearl.

I have found one blog reference to a Sedum 'Sparkle' (dated in 2007), but no photo.

Could it have been 'Crystal Pink' ? I could have translated that in my crazy brain as sparkle. Crystal/sparkle?

One thing to keep in mind a about 'Crystal Pink' is that it is quite short, only about a foot or a few inches more. Much taller then it probably is something else (I think).

Okay it is starting to bloom. I went back and looked at my orders. I am so obsessive. I take lots of pics of my plants and try to keep a record of where and what I purchased and traded and from whom. But I never or seldom use markers because I usually can look at a plant and name it and tell you where I purchased.

So I found I purchased it from Michigan Bulb so that alone tell me it was probably not a real name. Although they were and still one of the worst place to buy plants when they would send me 25.00 coupons and I did not have to match the purchase with a 25 order I would order the free plants. Cannot pass up Free. Rolling on the floor laughing

But the order says Sedum Sparkle.

Hmmm, I'm not finding that sedum. Is there more to the name.
Could we see a new photo of the entire plant?

Sedum 'Frosty Morn
'Matrona' is the tallest one I have.

But you get the picture it is the normal tall upright Sedum family.

Ahhh, that was what I wasn't sure of.
It appears that the bloom head when entirely open will have very pale colored blooms. Lets see it then, maybe we can get a better idea of what it might be. Smiling
