PRESALE Sedum Suaveolens
This sedum is definitively the most un-sedum like of all sedums we've encountered. Its name loosely translates to 'sweet-smelling sedum.' Delicate white blooms emerge from within the rosette, barely reaching over the edges of its leaves. The fragrance of these blooms, as its name would suggest, are sweet-smelling.
This plant has an interesting backstory. It was first discovered back in 1976 by a pair of researchers from the Huntington Botanical Garden growing alongside orchids next to a narrow river canyon in Northwestern Mexico. The pair of researchers described this sedum as "echeveria-like plants, their pure white rosettes growing singly or in clusters to two feet wide."
In cultivation expect this sedum exhibit beautiful pink hues in cooler temps. The pink stress is in striking contrast to the powdery bluish-white rosettes you will typically see in summer months. These can turn to a very pretty solid pink under the right conditions. We've seen one do this and it was one of our all time favorites. This sedum is commonly confused with Echeveria Elegans, and it's easy to see why.
This pretty little Suaveolens double measures in at about 3" across.

A little note about color intensity: Rest assured these photos have not been enhanced, but there is a slight possibility that once the succulent arrives the hue intensity may be slightly different, but the color intensity will return with colder temps and stress. All photos have been taken within the last three weeks.
