Sorry I didn't make a pic of the back of the tag. I'm one of those that trust tags to be correct. Is a different color from Blue Bird and Blue Spruce. I have looked on here and other nursery sites trying to I D but no luck. Thank you I tip my hat to you.

Linda I can't find enough information to request a new entry in the database. It almost looks like it is one of the already named Petrosedum, but was given a new name of 'Silver'?

O K, thank you for your help. It is from Pope's Plant Farm, Greenback, Tn. Why I didn't think of looking up "Carefree Succulents" to begin with Confused

I just saw this thread and not sure whether or how it was resolved. I do have this one growing in my yard and I will take a picture. It's one of several sedums that I have been intending to add to the database...

Linda and Tiffany I just now found this information:
http://www.jaldety.com/variety...
http://cactusjungle.com/plants...
http://www.armleenurseries.co....

It may be one that has already been on the market and was given a new name to pick up sales.

Linda, do you have any current photos of yours?

Thanks for bringing it up again Tiffany.

As soon as we have a day with a bit more natural light, I'll snap some pics of mine. Smiling I have noticed, and have taken photos for documentation, the "BLUE" colored sedums being sold as "blue spruce." Thanks in great part to garden.org data and the forum chat threads(shout out to @Dave !) I've learned much about the prevailance of mislabeling. With the "blue" colored sedums its become a fun puzzle for me to parse out. I now know that sometimes I've purchased sedums from the nursery with more than one species growing in the same pot! thanks to all the knowledge I've acquired here, I started taking pictures of them at different months of the year, and their flowers, to sort them out. Ill be submitting some new database proposals and more info for some confusing ones.

Thanks for the links, Lynn, and info, Linda! It's fun to get these parsed out!

Mark and the crew from Little Prince of Oregon are easy to communicate with and might be helpful in sorting this one out.
@Littleprince

Hopefully Mark will be on NGA and see this.

Now we need to see how it set buds and blooms next year.
It's a nice looking plant.
