Notes:

Hi. This is a plant that I took from my Grandmothers garden in Colorado 20 years ago and planted in middle Tennessee. It has always done well, and spread nicely until this year when I put mulch that retained water and it quickly started to die. I have transplanted what was left into a pot so I can keep an eye on it. When it is healthy it will grow in clumps 6-12″ high with small pink flowers on it in the summer. In the winter it completely dies off. It does well in partial sun. Thank you

    Hi Lynn, This looks like a plant from the sedum family, and yes, they dislike too much moisture. Sedum generally like full sun, but can tolerate part shade also. There are many different sedum, so identifying the specific one might be tricky. Some are groundcovers and grow to only a few inches tall, and others can be quite tall.
