ken_adrian Adrian MI cold Z5February 16, 2014

got it on a garden visit...

wondering if on this total lack of information.. any of you can name it ...

its aggressive .. in the sense that any piece of any size can turn into a nice spread in a few years.. nearly indestructible ... never.. ever needs watering ...

any guesses???

Hi ken,
Is it a tall plant like autumn joy or rather a carpet like thing? Some of the lower ones would fit this description, fall color, especially after a dry summer, is typicall for several.

Are the fleshy leaves rather pointy at the end or rounded?

Bye, Lin

definitely not lime zinger ...

looking at my title... lime was way off ... my bad ....

i guess i was thinking more like lemon lime soda... aka the color of mountain dew ... not 7up clear ...

what a nightmare... lol ...

link sure makes angelina seem apropos .... though i am surprised it is a named cultivar.. rather than a species invasive type weed... i mean any piece will root ... even if left on the driveway for most of the summer ... crikey ....

i spent a few minutes going thru hundreds of pix.. seeing if i had a pic of it under some plant worth taking a pic of ... lol... but alas.. not so ..

any other guesses???

someday the snow will melt ....

S. Angelina was my thought also, particularly due to the cold weather color you noted.

Sedum acre is a weed, but it doesn't have the orange fall and winter color.

Some form of Mossy Stonecrop such as Sedum lydium?

I have Angelina. Your description of yours sounds like that is what you have. Mine hasn't spread itself around much at all. It is in a remote bed that gets swamped in spring snow melt or any time it rains for more than a couple hours. Maybe that keeps it in check.

My guess would be Angelina as well. Depending upon the amount of light it gets, it can look more lime green than gold in the spring and summer, but puts on wonderful fall color!

Here's a photo and some growing information. Hope this helps. Also look at Autumn Charm. It does not grow as low but has really nice fall color too.
