I ordered this plant from Plant Delights Nursery who has it listed as being hardy in zone 5. I wish I'd looked at Dave's Garden before I ordered it. It did not make it through its first winter.

This plant is very easy to propagate, just lay a cutting on any soil surface and water. It will root very quickly.

Sedum bithynicum 'Sea Stars' - Diminutive 1" plant with tight, rounded blue foliage (diameter not much larger than a pencil eraser). In milder climates, foliage darkens to reddish tones in winter; may become semi-evergreen in colder areas. Tiny star-like white flowers in late summer can double plant height to over 2". Easy to grow - forms plush, spreading mat to 2' in a few seasons. Needs good drainage to perform well - avoid over watering. Easy to propagate, and if necessary, very easy to remove.
