I agree! I'm just getting in to sedums.
I just planted Angelina and Tricolor. So far they're looking good.

I know Lynn this whole bed is really great! It is under a tree so part shade, and there are all types of mixed sedum in there! Each year it is getting better and better!
Karen you will like them, there are so many different types, I like having the taller ones in back and shorter ones in front and creeping ones all over nodding

I wish this one would make it through our winters. I might try to transplant it into a nursery pot and put it on the covered porch over the winter and see if it would survive if kept dry.

It is a small piece that survived last winter, which really was a rather mild winter. All the rest died. Turned to mush when the first frost hit.

That's a real pretty one Lynn. I've been eyeing that to add to my collection. Interesting that it doesn't seem as hardy as other subsp. rupestre cultivars like 'Blue Spruce'.
First year in ground, from old coco fiber wire basket that had seen better days.

This pot is a dozen or more years old. This year was the first time repotting it. It's been through everything our seasons can throw at it, full sun, blazing heat, torrential rains, freeze, thaw, refreeze... It does shrink a little but more or less will look like this all winter, maybe a little more bronzing with the hard freeze.

As opposed to 'Stringy Stonecrop'. This will start turning to mush even thinking about frost. The mush will be gone with the first hard freeze. Hiding underneath out of view are the tiny rosettes at soil level that will be next spring's new growth.

I also have a small nursery pot of a rupestre green NOID, not sure if it's 'Green Spruce' or 'Angelina' that I couldn't get a good photo of. It more or less is behaving like the 'Blue Spruce'. I'll set that under shelter on my front porch just because the pot is so small.

Nice photos showing progression BigT.

Angelina and Blue Spruce are tough as nails here in my garden. It would sure be interesting to find out what cross was used in Lemon Coral/Lemon Ball. I would be growing this one all over the place if it was hardier. It also doesn't seem to bloom and does not become invasive like some of the rupestre types.

I'm thinking Lemon Ball might be S. mexicanum

I already checked that out 2 years ago. The leaves and stems are not the same.
