|So I've almost cleaned up my original mistake of not keeping track of what I was planting (yay!). I have two types of sedums (out of ~70 plants/~25 different types of sedum) left to ID. Are there any sedum experts who can lend a trained eye? |
The first (4 different plants included because the colors vary so much!):
(The upload flipped the image upside down again...)
The closest thing I've found so far seems to be Elizabeth/Queen Elizabeth:
Or, what I thought it was originally:
These do look awfully similar to some of my other plants that I'm sure are Dragon's Blood (or at least sure they were labeled that way...), the difference being that all the ones I'm sure are Dragon's Blood are in bloom and they seem to sprawl more and grow faster than the unids. I'm still very new to this whole "plant thing" - could this just be a case of some plants blooming and some not?
I thought these were makinoi limelight for a bit, but they don't seem nearly as vivid in coloration as my limelights and they seem to have variegated leaf tips, which my limelights (one pictured below with some Dragon's Blood blooms photobombing) don't:

|Second sedum is |
The first one is a Phedimus spurius, but not sure which one. Let's see what the blooms look like when it blooms.

|Wow Lynn you are on top of stuff, thanks again! Funny, in my notes I have them as "variegated makinoi?"...pretty close guess. I'll update whenever the others get around to blooming.|

Hopefully we will be able to identify the S. spurium. There are so many different cultivars now.
