Sedums are no longer called Sedums, but are now called Hylotelephiums.
That will make life easier then.
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.
OMG ... how am I supposed to remember that ... I'm 27!!!
Sedum telephium, often called Hylotelephium telephium,
Not in this garden it isn't..
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.
Not only are some Sedum now called Hylotelephium but others are now Petrosedum and Phedimus
... and most asters are now called Symphyotrichum;
Dicentra spectabilis is Lamprocapnos spectabilis,
"That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet."
I will be sticking to the names that I and other over 27s know.
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...........
......and as well as Hylotelephium,Petrosedum and Phedimus there are still some which are called Sedum!
