I saw this growing in someome’s yard among large rocks while visiting Rockport, Mass. I sopke with the owner and he said they planted it so it is not growing wild. He could not remember the name. He said it has bright yellow flowers all summer long. What is it?
If it’s hardy in zone 5, wouldn’t it be hardy in Atlanta (zone 7) too? Zone 7 is warmer than zone 5.

t4crafton, apparently Sedum ellacombianum or Yellow stoncrop is a subspecies of Russian sedum, Sedum kamtschaticum or Orange sedum. They look identical to me but Sedum kamtschaticum will grow in the Atlanta area. Check this link from the UGA field trials http://ugatrial.hort.uga.edu/index.cfm?fuseaction=plants.plantDetail&plant_id=15889

Thanks Bobby. Looks like it won’t grow here in ATL since it is only hardy to zone 5. I appreciate your help.

Looks like a variety of stonecrop: Sedum ellacombianum. http://www.greenroofplants.com/catalog/plant-catalog/viewplant/?plantid=628
