I got NO guesses from the plant ID forum, so I brought my question to the sedum forum....
I bought a flat of this this week and it was labeled "Voodoo"
But it's not.
And I didn't see anything that looks like it in the plant database.....
Note the little yellow flowers, yes they ARE attached.

|It looks to be a Sedum acre. But not sure.|

|I can't match it to anything anywhere....|

|We may have to see photos throughout the year. They can change in appearance due to weather, soil and water conditions. |
It looked a lot like S. album, but that doesn't have yellow flowers.

|Yes, I did think about Album when I was searching... But ruled it out for the flowers.|
I hope it doesn't change too much - I'm planning to do patterns with it and Angelina!

|That should be beautiful. Can't wait to see photos of the finished project.|

|Oh it'll probably be silly.|
But silly works for me.
I'd make a peace sign out of it but I already made one in the wet cement sidewalk in front of the bed it's to go in.

You are so much fun. Looking forward to the photos.

It's really more that I'm just crazy.

|Crazy helps when gardening.|

|I think crazy is absolutely required for the amount of physical work I've been doing to "transform" the all grass yard I bought into the calming plant filled retreat I sought....|

|I would love to see photos of your retreat.|

|It's in the "cluttered mess" stage at the moment.....|
Maybe next season.

|Danita figured it out over on the ID forum!|
The thread "Mislabeled at the nursery" in Plant ID forum

|That might be it. Lets watch it so see how it develops. If it is Chocolate Ball it will a very dark chocolate color in full sun. Can't wait to see how it develops.|

|Hi CG, Your sedum looks like an album of some type, not a rupestre - which has ball shapes as the new growth begins. Rupestre has a more feathery look than yours. There are many hybrids of album, so I think you just have one of those. Its a nice one|

|We now think it's "Chocolate Ball".|
Whatever it is, i like it!

|It does look like the "Chocolate Ball" I just purchased. |
By the way HI from another Pittsburgh member.
