Sedum Suaveolens

This is such a pretty cultivar in the right hands. The last photo is a reference of the same cultivar under stress.

Sedum Suaveolens 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. According to information we've researched the fragrance of these blooms, as its name would suggest, are sweet-smelling (although we took a sniff of one in-stock we had while in bloom it smelled like a salad to us, just an FYI for those of you who are enamored by the name and backstory). 

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."

Sedum Suaveolens have amazing potential in the right hands. They can go extreme shades of blush, given the right stress conditions. We are including a reference pic of our favorite Sedum Suaveolens. You will need cold temps to produce this coloration, but it is possible with the right climate and patience. 

This Sedum Suaveolens double measures in at a generous 4" across, and has an an older root system.
