Very poorly looking Sedum Autumn Joy

Hi guys,

I have two Sedum Autumn Joy however one of them seems very healthy, green and has thick stems and just a meter away there is another but it looks awful!

It has very skinny stems, it looks very pale and the leaves are mottled. Is this some kind of disease?

First photo is the healthy one and second two are the sickly one.

    I also had two sedums in a border, both looked fine a few weeks ago so I decided to move one. The roots were totally infested with vine weevil grubs. Although I sometimes find them in potted primulas I've never come across them in open ground. Sad to say the whole plant went in the council recycling bin. I don't know what's wrong with your plant but it may be worth checking the roots.

    Good thinking Bilje! I might dig it up tomorrow and take a look. I have had vine weevil kill a couple of plants last year which were in the ground so maybe they have gotten to the Sedum  :/
