I would like a fame montrose I think. I love the twisted shape.
I have avoided begging DH to take photos of what I have bought to post here because I have managed to turn three purchases of plants into NOIDs. Quite quickly too!

I do to Terri. I have never received a bad plant from them. Not saying it can't happen, this is not a perfect world. : )
This is one I got from them many years ago and it's still one of my favorites.

You got it Cynthia. Pink Pearl is really being stubborn right now, no sign of making offsets. I am thinking the calcareum are slower to get going, maybe need more sun and drier weather. Keeping my fingers crossed. I have two in the below strawberry pot and 3 in one of the raised beds. Until last year I never paid attention to when they started making offsets. None last year as I let all but these few die in container that the soil compacted, so the remaining lives ones just worked at getting healthy and produced no offsets. : (
Here is a photo I took yesterday. It's in the heat of summer that it turns that beautiful blue color.

So, I bought the Sedum stenopetalum from SMG.Mine looks just like Terri's. Ugh! I didn't see this posting until after I had placed my order. My order was sent out on a Wednesday, spent the weekend at the post office and was finally delivered on Tuesday. All of my plants looked a little stressed. I ordered all semps and the single sedum.

Here is my order:
Jovibarba heuff. 'Bermuda'
Semp. 'Pastel'
Semp. arachnoideum f/Val Miniera
Semp. 'Blue Boy'
Sempervivum Cuttings
Sempervivum Assorted
Semp. tectorum f/Soldeu
Jovibarba arenaria f/Salzburgerland
Semp. 'Red Rum'
Sedum stenopetalum
Jovibarba heuff. 'Beaver'

The 'Pastel' and the 'Blue Boy' still have yet to recover. Sad

Really nice list Sandi.

Here are some photos of Sedum stenopetalum, at different stages of it's growing it can look quite different.
http://calphotos.berkeley.edu/...

How long have you had the plants? Keep them in a sheltered (from harsh sun) spot until they start waking up.
Twit has taught us to put then in your planting medium (better if it isn't a peat bases one), give them a drink and give them time to recover. Don't keep them wet.
Don't give another drink until the soil pretty much dries out.

Can you post photos so we can see what you are talking about?

Here is my S. 'Blue Boy' after a difficult rainy season this year.

The stenopetalum from smg doesn't look at all like the photo on their site. I've been watching it. It does look like the photos from several places of "stenopetalum". In my research I did discover that there are apparently two forms of stenopetalum. And though I have never seen an actual photo of the second "form", I wonder if the photo on the smg site is second form?

:( I will say though, otherwise I have been happy with their plants. And the plant is stenopetalum, just different from photo. All they need to do is put up a new photo. Maybe they are getting a new photo.

Ok, Lynn. Now if you look at the 'Blue Boy', it looks as if it has gone through a severe drought! Sad It is lacking in color and shriveled. You expect it to look like this(maybe) if it has had a long ways to travel in a dark box. Noticed how it is arched up. The roots were completely dry and crumbly when it arrived. The 'Pastel' doesn't look as bad. It too was really dried up! I received this order on the 10th and planted right away. Usually if I receive bare root plants, it takes a day or two for them to perk up. What are your thoughts? Ah, and the last picture is of the mysterious stenopetalum. I used a cacti and succulent soil. All of the other plants recovered quickly.
