Could it be Stonecrop (Sedum spathulifolium 'Cape Blanco')?

Possibly Sedum anglicum 'Susie Q'

Hi Don. Nice guess, but it is definitely not a S. spathulifolium type sedum.

Jean, you nailed it. Thank you so much. Here is another link with a little more information. http://plantlust.com/plants/sedum-suzie-q/

Thank you Jean. I wonder if this Suzie Q is a cross between S. anglicum and another sedum. Straight anglicum doesn't seem to have the same leaf type.
This one seems to come from a California wholesale nursery by the name of Native Sons http://nativeson.com/
They list it as a Sedum, not Sedum anglicum

Hi Lynn.

The pic I gave you in the first link (photo by Melissa-Gale), ID's it as S anglicum Suzie Q, and that same picture is used in the Native Son Nursery link (Melissa-Gale/Native Son) along with a second picture tagged by Native Son.

At the top left of the Native son site, they list it as Sedum Susie Q, also known as Suzie Q English stonecrop. That said, UMMM Shrug! I dunno Confused It seems to require a bit more research I do believe. I will poke around a bit and see what I might stumble upon.

I'll be back... I tip my hat to you.

Home again, home again. Here is the short answer.

Suzie Q is the variegated sport of S anglicum 'Hartland'

Here is the rest of the story from Plant Lover's Guide to Sedums page 139 by Brent Horvath

I ran across an ID for Little Missy.... listed as Crassula (sedum) pellucida I read on a thread in Sedum forum that someone, I think Bev, was looking for species info...I think...I have read a lot of threads/links lately... nodding

Jean, when I look at photos of Crassula pellucida it appears to be a different plant. I did own this plant a few years back. The stems are much thicker and leaves also are thicker and more robust.
S. 'Little Missy' if you see it in person is quite different, with very tiny thinner leaves and much smaller and delicate stems.

The C. pellucida I had had the same leaf colors as S. 'Little Missy'.

I found it rather confusing. I first searched for Sedum 'Little Missy' and had Crassula pellucida Little Missy show up among the links. Then I searched S pellucida Little Missy and got links for both again.
I was hoping to trace parentage, but some family trees are made of iron wood and misdirection... Whistling Thanks for the clarification Thank You!
