First bloom on this plant was April 10th and is still blooming on June 25th. The bloom stalks keep getting so tall that eventually you cannot see the actual plant below the bloom stalks. My plant is in full sun. This plant is also beautiful in a pot sitting in the shade on my porch. What a fabulous plant!

This is very similar to sedum album, except for a few minor details:
The stems of potosinum age to a deep red color, and the overall color of the plant has more blue in it, than the sedum album.

It also seems to stay less covered with the little "leaves", nearest the beginning of the stems, thus exposing and showing off the red stems.

The flowers are a lovely white/peach.

I love the look of this one cascading over a rock wall, or planter. It drapes & cascades quite nicely.
