This plant is not showy on its own; I find it best combined with sedum "Autumn Joy" or "Purple Emperor." Its variegation complements them beautiful and they make a great statement together. You have to watch for all-green sports in the spring and remove them or yes, you will lose the variegation. "Frosty Morn" is also more susceptible to aphids than any of my other sedums, but a quick spray with insecticidal soap a couple times in the spring takes care of that, and the plant is fine the rest of the season. I like "Frosty Morn" a lot and recommend it to anyone who has "Autumn Joy" since they're such a great pair.

I've grown many sedums successfully and have not had good luck with this one. For one thing, I've found the variegation to not be true. On the same plant some of the foliage was solid green losing its variegation. Also the white flowers were not too attractive or showy in my garden. As for growth habit, after the first winter it died back quite a bit. It looked the best when I planted it from the nursery. I guess I have to try it in a different location before I totally give up on this one.

This is the easiest and prettiest sedum I have. If the stems lay over the flowers will remain upright, , so no problem! loved by my pair of visiting comma butterflies. grows well, slowly increasing zone 8a in UK. Gives a nice contrast.

I grew this plant for 4 years and tried it in a number of different location, but was never very impressed with it. It did look nice in the spring, but by mid summer started to fall over and never looked very good the rest of the year. Flower color is not very attractive.

Great form of an old favorite, variegated white/green leaf coloration, takes full sun in 9b, seems stronger stemmed than some of the other varieties.
