|Does anyone recognize this wonderfully little succulent? |
Sep 7, 2014 7:20 AM CST
|Could it be Stonecrop (Sedum spathulifolium 'Cape Blanco')?|
Sep 7, 2014 11:15 AM CST
|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/se...

|Cool sedum...now I have to find one Happy to help Lynn. |
Here is some general care info for the species, Sedum anglicum, English stonecrop

|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

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 I dunno 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...

|Home again, home again. Here is the short answer.|
Suzie Q is the variegated sport of S anglicum 'Hartland'

It just gets better. You are amazing Jean. Bev is so excited about getting this information.

| You are most welcome, Lynn. Glad I was able to help.|
I am going to have to buy this one. It looks to be a winner.
Sep 8, 2014 10:21 AM CST
|It truly is adorable. Unfortunately I haven't seen it for sale up here.|
Sep 8, 2014 10:25 AM CST
|I will keep an eye open and let you know if I find it.|

|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...|
Sep 8, 2014 12:21 PM CST
|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'.
Sep 8, 2014 2:10 PM CST
|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... Thanks for the clarification
