I have had them do the same way as Chris's oro. Next year the colony came back, not sure if from seed or miniscule offsets that went dormant for winter?

There are a few very tiny ones underneath that didn't bloom. Hope mine comes back too Lynn!

It will Chris. And be sure to let at least some of the seeds fall into the container.

Aww Greg you are a big meanie, bullying (or more like tempting) me to get further into my new addiction. Glare

Greg, they think they know but they really have no idea (yet) Whistling

I came home and unpacked my PO package. Cynda was so kind to give me an extra Oro for free due to the error of their website naming Sedum rupestre Lemon Coral as Lemon Curl Hurray! . Now I have the Oro Hybrid and what I believe to be an Oro malacophylla var. iwarenge. The tag says its Oro erubescens but the actual plant looks the same as the one in Chris's photo above. It came with 1 blooming Oro and the bloom looks the same as well. As I got home from work late and I was rushing to get them situated before it gets dark, I don't have a photo of the 2 Oros I got. Will try to get photos as soon as I can, which will probably take a few days. Shrug!
