Lately I have focused my attention on the hardy ground-cover type sedums, so it is a pleasant surprise to have the new "border types" brought to my attention. They are worth growing even if various critters like to nibble on them. So, without getting too technical, if possible, what was it that caused this group of plants to be split off from the genus Sedum? And, is ice plant just another common name for Sedum spectabile? Around here ice plant is commonly used to refer to succulents in the genus Delosperma. Thanks for an informative article, and thank you to all the talented photographers.

I'm no taxonomist so I cannot answer why this group of 'sedums' was split...it probably has something to do with minute floral structures. The root system does differ a bit too. Around here, ice plant also refers to Delosperma.
