@SunSparkler Chris, can you give us an ID for this one?

Linda can you take a photo of the front and back of the tag?

What a bummer, I can't believe the cultivar name was not added. Sad
I looks like it could be 'Cherry Tart', but lets wait to see what Chris says.

Looks like either Cherry Tart or Firecracker; how cool it is that you can ask the breeder/hybridizer directly!! Hurray! Thumbs up Hurray!
I'm very interested in hearing what he has to say as well. I grow both and have noticed the differences in my very limited experience, but I would love to hear specifically how exactly he sees the differences.

Yes, I agree J.C.
He may be off on another trip abroad.

Based on what I saw today I don't think it's Firecracker nor Wild Cherry. Hope I made photos of those two.

Wild Cherry is a spurium type of sedum, so I don't think it would be that one.

Good Morning! This looks like our SunSparkler® Sedum 'Firecracker'. It has too many branches and the leaves are smaller, so it's not Cherry Tart. Sorry for my delayed response, but it's been crazy-busy in our greenhouses this spring and early summer! I'll post some pictures later this morning. @valleylynn and @chickhill

Thanks Chris!
Good to know that the differences I've noticed are actually accurate and not just figments of my imagination. Sticking tongue out
