As much as I love sedums it is really hard to have a favorite, but this little gem is right up there at the top of my list.
Just be careful of over watering in the cool months ... has a tendency to get mildew in early spring if it is too wet ... I grow this in the ground and in containers in zone 7a

At long last I have a name for this other than "beady sedum!" Just added two pics from my rock garden. It's one of my favorites for it's close-growing habit, blue color and pretty bloom.

This is a pretty blue Sedum, suitable as a groundcover or rock garden plant. It is very tiny, see my image for standard plant stake size comparison.
