Looks like a sedum my mom has, but I don't know its name. Does it get little yellow flowers earlier in the season?

Sorry Crimson I can only tell you what it isn't. It isn't a Lysimachia I'm afraid. It could well be a Sedum as GW said but which one I really don't know

Deep South Coastal, TX(Zone 10a)

Is it sedum acre?

Helsinki, Finland(Zone 4b)

Sedum? :/ I would say Thyme :) heheh

Milo, IA(Zone 5a)

Calalily is right it is sedum acre, sometimes called rock moss.

Helsinki, Finland(Zone 4b)

No, it is not Sedum acre, we have tons of it and it looks all different -

Wonder what kind of sedums you have there *G* :>

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

I'd agree it's Sedum acre - I have a bunch of it, and when it blooms it looks similar to Evert's photo. When it's not blooming (which is most of the time) it looks like Crimson's photo.

Our Sedum acre never looks like that, ours is 'compact' all year round.

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

Evert, I would guess that it's probably due to climate differences. Here it sprawls over everything, and can look a bit different depending on how much sunlght it receives.

Helsinki, Finland(Zone 4b)

Ours are in full sun, pretty dry places. Funny, I've never seen a sedum acre like that, even not in foreign countries.

Georgetown, TX(Zone 8a)

Looks a lot like my mouse ear jew, but I have never seen any blooms on it. The leaves are fleshy on mine, and I can't tell if these are or not.

I agree with Evert on this one. While Sedum acre can have a trailing habit the leaves are too large and widely spaced on the specimin in the above picture to be this species.

Westbrook, ME(Zone 5a)

I think the difference is between Sedum acre ..... and Sedum acre aurea. I believe we've been through this debate before ;o) I have both and I think they are both varieties of sedum acre.

Helsinki, Finland(Zone 4b)

Still looks too compact ;)

(Zone 8a)

Creeping Jenny has larger rounder leaves...I have some of this plant received from MIL...I have no idea what it is and it does bloom small yellow flowers and must be hardy for it comes back every year!

south central, WI(Zone 5a)

Poppysue, I agree with you. I saw Crimson's plant and it is what the growers here label as sedum acre aurum; it starts out very compact, but with our climate stretches out and often gets a bit lighter green later on in summer. Mine often gets a head start on taking over the bed.

Bay City, MI(Zone 6a)

i have a sedum that looks like that its called teardrops
