When did you receive them Sandi? Do you have them outside or indoors?

On the Sedum stenopetalum, look at these photos and see how they compare to your plant. Remember they can change form depending on time of year, light and weather.

They have been potted for 2 weeks today. All are outside. The Sedum stenopetalum does look like your pics but definitely not what SMG was selling. What they were selling looked like a rosette shaped sedum. I think Terri concluded we must have a different variety.

Did it look more like this? http://www.google.com/imgres?i...

Your semps look like they will be alright. They are just going through the stress of shipping/lack of light, but look healthy in your photos. It won't be long before they start looking normal. When semps are shipped bare root they should be dry, other wise they may start rotting even in the few days of travel. They are more than capable of handling it since they store the nutrients and water they need for times of drought. Thumbs up

Yes, the photo on the site looked like S. stenopetalum "douglasii", however the plants received look like regular stenopetalum. So technically, they are stenopetalum, just not like the photo.
I shall henceforth count you all as enablers of my collecting \"disease\".
