Mystery seedling
« on: September 07, 2023, 10:41:04 AM »
Following an enjoyable holiday in the Picos de Europa, and the hire of a 4x4 and Laura the driver for three days, she later sent us seed of a very nice Pulsatilla rubra var hispanica.They have taken less than four weeks to appear but there is a mystery seedling which also appeared. The pots were kept in a frame but we cannot imagine what the seedlings are. The pic is one at 7mm across.Help!

Hi Johnny,
it has the look of something succulent - maybe Rhodiola or Crassula - whatever possibly comes from that area. Time to check the Floras!
cheers

Have a look at Sedum Mocinianum.

Eureka!!!
Searching around the troughs I finally found it :D Phew!
According to Pl@ntNet it is Sedum hispanicum, though it got in the pots we do not know. ???
