Sedums are no longer called Sedums, but are now called Hylotelephiums.

That will make life easier then.

And may you never lay your head down
Without a hand to hold
May you never make your bed out in the cold

    Noooooooooo! How are the ignorant among us ever to catch up? I like sedums, they look after themselves. Its a conspiracy like crazy spelling to confuse the unwary and I'm not joining in.

    THEY ARE LUCKY TO EVEN GET CALLED SEDUMS HERE.

    I CALLED THEM POPPER PLANTS WHEN I WAS FIVE, AND I STILL DO.

    Remember when they changed crysanths to dendrasomething and there was an outcry so they changed it back.   Taxonomy gone mad.  Sedums for me.

    Oh Joyce! I'm over 27 and I don't know the old names. I like wildflowers, they have much easier and nicer names, stuff like Germander Speedwell, Dove's foot cranesbill, Rose-bay Willow herb...........
