There are a fair number of American members of the Society, so why not join us, Tom? The Cuttings exchange is a fantastic way to increase you stock of plants.
The Website has a Downloadable membership form.

Tom

....four colour issues per year, a cuttings exchange, seed distribution and access to expert identification/resources.

I'm currently working on the species index for the first 100 issues of the magazine and hope to have it on the website early in the New Year. (Hoping to complete draft for the editor by the year end!)

Come and join us you'd be made very welcome.

I was very impressed by this http://fizzynotions.wordpress.com/2012/08/17/rose-crown/ (http://fizzynotions.wordpress.com/2012/08/17/rose-crown/) Rhodiola on a Nargs trip some years back. It seemed to grow mostly in wet spring flushes, but very seasonal water maybe. I bought a plant 2 years back but it did not survive in my boggy patch alongside the pond.
Anyone else grow it here in the UK? I would like to try it again sometime.

When I saw it, it was growing at Summit Lake on Mt Evans,very lovely robust plants in the roadside grit,so very well drained.

Dear Palustris

I would like to ask, there is any problems in the “cutting exchange” if you want send plants into the USA? (How can you send living plants into USA from Europe?)

Thanks

I have not tried to send Cuttings to America for a long time, so I am not able to help. If you Email Ray Stephenson at the Sedum Society (from the Web page) I am sure he will be able to give definite advice.

Rosularia chrysantha alias Prometheum chrysanthum. Rosularia pallida is generally considered to be conspecific
with the considerably different yellow-flowered Rosularia aizoon. The basic difference should be
central flower-stem in Rosularia chrysantha, peripheral flower-stems in Rosularia pallida alias
Rosularia aizoon. The right flower belongs to the standard cultivated plant having central flower-stems.
Recently, seeds of a plant which has central flower-stem, peripheral flower-stems or either of them
in one rosette were imported. Its flowers left are identical, solely purple stripes are distinct.
The group needs thorough reconsideration.

The flower-buds of Sedum dasyphyllum left are globose, whereas
the flower-buds right of the garden plant denoted so are conical,
as the flower-buds of Sedum album.
