Seed Swaps

Unknown Succulent

14°C / 58°F

As the growing year draws to a close here, I think it’s finally time to get a sense of what this lovely little succulent is that I collected from between the flagstones of a friend’s garden. It was growing in full sun under drought conditions, and has flourished in similar circumstances throughout the summer in a tiny pot. It tops out at just under 2" and spreads in this very dense growth.

Does anyone have any idea what this might be? I have seen it in other places around town, so I suspect it is fairly common.




Some kind of sedum?

Hmm, that seems sensible. Perhaps sedum sexangulare?

I believe it’s a Sedum rupestre ‘Angelina’. ( The color of your sedum isn’t quite as yellow-green as the pictures in my link, but the foliage and dense growth habit match ‘Angelina’ very well.

Thanks for the thought! It would be fabulous if it was ‘Angelina’. I’m keeping my eye on it to see if I get some gorgeous color changes when the weather turns cool. Fingers crossed ….
