Wow, I love the leaf shape on this one, and the colors are gorgeous! Any idea if it's hardy in zone 4/5?

Chris, this is a new sedum for me, this summer. I got it from Perennial Obsessions.
I would think if you can grow the any of the Sedum spathulifolium types you could grow this one. So I would say down to zone 5?

This could possibly be a cross between an S. spathulifolium and laxum.
S. laxum is also cold hardy to zone 5.

I've been trying to find where this one originated, so far with no success.

I am looking forward to seeing how it goes through winter and spring. I'm wondering if it will have color changes, or does it stay this color?

Even if it doesn't change colors, it's still a beauty.

I agree Really neat sedum. I too Love the colors.

Since I do not have real good luck with sedum, I may wait to see how it does for Chris.
If it does OK in Michigan I may try it here. I need to go look at my sedums and see how they are faring too.
Have John Creech and Leneare both are supposed to be pretty hardy. The Leneare is "sea urchin" and survived last winter
so have hopes it will last again. I think I had baby toes, Old Men's Bones and Gold bug or gold something..... and will need to check on them too.
Several of the others died over the summer.
I bought a new Autum Joy but bought it so late it did not bloom. I need to get it into a good pot.

Well, so far, so good with the coloring on this sedum. Seems like the color intensifies with the colder weather.


Marilyn, I am finding that the sedum to need more water during dry spells, even here in the milder climate of the Pacific Northwest. So you might need to water your sedum more often.
In the spring I can send you some starts of this one to test in your growing conditions. That would be a great experiment to understand more about the growing zones for it. Hurray!

Great, I suspect you are right about the water. I will look forward to Spring and cleaning everything up and getting
some more starts of various plants. Thanks.

I will try to be better about taking photos of what is/is not alive out there. I cleaned out all the coleus (I did not take any cuttings) and my begonias and the geraniums. I treat them all as annuals and just replace them in Spring (middle May here.) So I have a bit of a pot ghetto developing out there. It is supposed to be nice in the high 50s low 60s a day or two coming up, so will try to get out and complete the clean up process.

I was discussing with a friend who took me to the Dr about the plantings am told her I was convinced that a bit of Eden was moved to the PNW as all your plants do well out there.

They do well in your area also. Just look at what they have at the Denver Botanical Gardens. Lovey dubby
I call that a piece of Eden.
Besides that, you had a beautiful garden this year. Your containers were gorgeous.
