Have had this plant more years than I can remember and always call it Blue Spruce. Want to know if I have it named correctly. Does have yellow bloom atop stem (maybe 5-6" tall). Pic taken today 3/17/14. Thank you for any input. chickhill

Hmm, the Blue Spruce I know is a coniferous evergreen (blue) tree that grows to 20ft. or so. But here's a link to a succulent Stonecrop and the variety is 'Blue Spruce' so you may be right! Is this it? Once you click the link, scroll down to where there are more pictures.

It looks like my Sedum 'Blue Spruce'.
