Love this plant. Its tough, attracts butterflies, and drought resistant as well. If you want more you literally just break off a piece and stick it in the ground!! Last year I bought one plant and now I have 8!

Love this bright pink color!
Grew it last year for the first time and it behaved much as my other sedums. Absolutely no care at all. I accidentally broke off a piece and stuck it in the ground in another location and it grew and thrived!
Not bothered by our hot dry summers.
EDITED to add: I changed my rating from pos to neu. I do love this plant but it tends to sprawl and flop from the center out. I will try to upload a pic to show it. The plant is in my front bed and looks kinda bad. Am thinking of moving it to a better place. My other types of sedums dont flop over at all- and theyre much taller.

I got a tiny piece of this plant this year and it has struggled to live, now I can see it has finally caught hold and is putting on new leaves, I will bring it indoors so it can get a little size on it before I place it back out in the garden next spring. Alonside my autum joy, matrona, frosty morn, and brilliant, sedums it should look just great. I can't wait for the first blooms
