Here is another mystery sedum. Looks similar to Blue Carpet but doesn't fall apart when I touch it.
If I remember Blue Carpet correctly, it has finer needles and delicate/falls apart. I give up trying to grow it. The first 4 photo's are current color, growth.

Has grown to fill up the black 4" pot. Hummm maybe I need to put one stem out to itself to see if it turns into Turquoise Tail???

Put some in a hypertufa pot (pic magnified) and not growing well at all, very slow.

This pic was earlier this spring after I got it in a NO ID pot of sedum/sempervivum. Was ID'd on here as Turquoise Tails back in May but now I don't think so.

Thank you for your time I tip my hat to you.

Hi Linda, it's looking a lot like one of the Jelly Bean Sedums to me; do you think?
If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.

Similar to Many Fingers (Sedum pachyphyllum) but no photos of stems.


There's one called 'Tropical Blue' that looks similar color but no stems showing on it either:


I'm not at all familiar with sedum so just a guess on my part. I think member @Valleylynn knows Sedum so perhaps she can help.

My plant is winter hardy, we've had a few freezing night's. 32 last night. No frost damage.
Off topic, while looking again I found another good site for succulents glasshouseworks.com . Don't go look you might want one or two. Whistling Hilarious!

Linda, Jelly Bean (Sedum rubrotinctum) is listed as zone 9a and higher but I see the others above don't have zones listed. Your plant is really gorgeous and I do hope some of our members who grow those beauties will be able to help you with a more exact ID.

Regarding Glasshouse Works: https://www.glasshouseworks.co... They have some really amazing succulents as well as tropical's, houseplants, perennials, etc! I've browzed their online store so many times over the years that I'm surprised the buttons on my laptop aren't frayed like a paper catalog Green Grin! but I've never ordered from them (can't remember if it was due to high shipping or if I just found the particular plant locally but I've been tempted by photos on their site for a very long time! You can read our member recommendations for Glasshouse Works on this page of our Green Pages: Glasshouse Works

Thank you plantladylin and islander
Don't think it is. My Stonecrop (Petrosedum forsterianum) died. The stems are not as thick and hard.

Thank you all. I think it may be Tiny Buttons Sedum (Sedum hispanicum 'Pink Form'. Saw this one when I looked under the Sedum hispanicum . How did I miss it? I knew it wasn't Blue Carpet.

I did take out a stem to show just how small it is. Wonder if you can edit out wrinkles on an Iphone Hilarious! Hilarious!

O K found another one that looks like mine, dasyphyllum var. glanduliferum. I guess the guessing game goes on.
UPDATE Not dasyphyllum var. glanduliferum, mine does not have hairs. Thank you leftwood.

No, I don't think so. Even regular dasyphyllum has glandular nubs or "hairs" (when you look close enough), and glanduliferum has lots of them. Your pics show no glandular nubs or "hairs" at all. Your leaves are smooth.
