Sedum hintonii (piaxtlaensis)
Sedum hintonii (piaxtlaense)
These has for some time been a mix up between Sedum hintonii and Sedum mocinianum with a recent rename of what we have known as S.hintonii is Sedum piaxtlaense.
Sedum piaxtlaense has rather short very fat and fury green leaves with short flower spikes 5 to 6 cm long (when it grows in bright area, growing in shade the flower stem will be longer than normal) with very small leaf petioles on the flower stem culminating with white flowers and yellow stamens.
Sedum mococinianum on the other hand has longer leaves that are more bluish with many individual long hairs (not fur) flower stems are much longer to about 16 to 18 cm in good light, Leaf petioles on the flower spike are quiet large or prominent the flowers are white with darker brown stamens.
Please note Sedum piaxtlaense is much faster to grow than Sedum mococinianum which can be very prone to rotting in winter..
