This is the only Sedum sp. Im familiar with that can be cultivated in the open ground with any level of success in frost-free regions of FL.

Good landscaping species here in southern California. And good for pots, too. Seems hardier than zone 10a... no problems in zone 9b. Moderately fast grower, will fill a pot in less than a year... but easy to prune out if crowding other plants. The unique yellow-orange color is a great contrast in sunny locations.

The leaves are longer and more narrow than S. adolphii.
They will turn orange with good sun and little water. Suitable for rock gardens, baskets, dishgardens, ground cover, mass plantings. So is S. adolphii. These are frequently available at nurseries. Low's. WalMart. Enjoy
