Medium-sized sedum: its flowers have the yellow color and form of S. kamtschaticum, but are considerably larger, which allows them to show off their burgundy stems. They are not as tall or upright as the Autumn Joy types, though. Looks good leaning over the edge of our rock-edge raised bed.

This may be the same thing as S. ellacombianum, for which I traded seed independently. In my second year of trying, I just managed to germinate some, so I'll be able to judge any similarities/differences soon.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
