Is this some sort of sedum, and does anyone know what kind? My Mom always called it "pot of gold," but I can find no information on it. It is about 6 inches high in groundcover form, and has 1/2 inch blooms. Blooms in mid May in zone 5.

I just brought back several pieces of that from Wisconsin. Don't know the name, but it survived the plane trip and the replanting really well.

In some pictures of sedum acre the foliage looks different. In others, I can't tell. Are there varieties of sedum acre that have the same foliage as mine?

This is different than the plant I know as sedum acre. I have this one (tho I don't know it's true ID) and s.acre also. They have dfferent leaves and this plant grows much faster. I have a good shot of the s.acre foliage I'll post here for you to see.
