I just bought a sedum from Mountain Crest Gardens sold as Sedum spectabile 'Rocky'. I would assume this should be Hylotelephium, but I can't find it in the database under either name. Did I miss something or is it perhaps a new cultivar? Or maybe they just made up a name for all I know. Glare

Thanks Zuzu. I don't know how I missed that one - I must have had something spelled wrong when I searched.

Lauri thank you for posting this question. I did not know about this lovely sedum/hylotelephium 'Rocky'.
Just ordered it from Santa Rosa Gardens. Can't wait to add it to my beds. Thank You!
