detailed seed-starting info below

Succulent annual sedum, with true blue flowers as the species name suggests. They looked real cool as seedlings, forming masses of bright green succulent leaves. Then when planted outside, they changed their appearance altogether, going burgundy in the leaves and becoming a bit scraggly. The flowers followed in June - they are pale blue, looking almost white when viewed in bright sunlight (at least from my six-foot-one vantage point). For now, I consider it an interesting oddity.

Oddly bare stems - nothing like any other sedum I've grown

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
