is this long-live/ live-forever plant

theremustbmoreJune 11, 2007

I have been growing these for over three years, and have been told they were called forever plants. I believe they are really called live-forever plants. Hopefully someone can tell me here are some pics of them. It get's purplish pink tiny flowers at end of summer/fall.

Steph,

Yes, it is a type of Sedum, and it is called Live Forever for a good reason. My Grand Mother had them in her garden, and she was a very early settler in the U.P. of Michigan. (l910) The old homestead is long gone back to forrest, but her Live Forevers are still going strong. Many of us grand children have visited the spot and gathered starts of her plants for our own gardens. Sun Shade No Fuss No Muss.
