Not completely accurate info. though, I'm afraid. There are several pinks, not just Autumn Joy, and several reds.

I am betting Sedum "Neon", but difficult to tell without the flowers.

i guess.. when she said she bought it YEARS AGO ... i was thinking decades....

when there was really only one color... except the the hardcore cognizatti of the plant world ...

the pink one in my yard came from my parents.. who had it since the late 1960s or 70s ... and mom got it for a lady.. who got it from a lady.. who probably got it from a lady ...

its the type of plant you can stick a shovel in the middle.. cut it in half... plant it.. and ignore it forever ...

grows best and doesnt flop.. if its NEVER watered nor fert'd ... and mine grows in near barren sand ...

forgive me if i made a presumption
