I bought this Sedum a few years ago. It was marked as S. acre and I am pretty positive that it is not. It does not look anything like my other S. acres. The foliage is lime green and it blooms in yellow. It sends out long shoots above ground, that root wherever they touch. In a pot, it trails.

I have this same sedum in my gardens and I love it. I spreads yes, but it lifts out easily when you have something to plant in its place. I have it growing out of a stone wall and in early June with its yellow bloom it is beautiful. I am in the process ( with the help of DH and DS) of replacing the grass in our front yard with stepping type stones and perennials and shrubs and I want to use this between the stones along with some other creeping plants.--Joy

Hello Badseed,
not so easy without flowers - the foliage looks like S.reflexum from what I can see. If the bright yellow flowers are borne on stems around 15cm it is a possibility. If only around 5cm and green/yellow then possible s.acre

Yikes! If this is S. acre, then what the heck is the other one that was given to me as S. acre and looks completely different?? Guess this will lead to another photo. I am also supposed to have reflexum, kamschaticum, spurium tricolor and some other creepers. I'll have to see what is on my computer or take new pics. argh

Badseed - I have the same two your talking about. I think we debated about this on this same forum last year. After searching around - I believe there is sedum acre (which you have pictured here) and a sedum acre aureum (which is probably your other one). I took a close up of the foliage last year of the aureum. I'll see if I can find it. The both have yellow flowers but the foliage is very different.
