Sedum pulchellum?

Sedum pulchellum?

A few years ago I grew a packet of seeds I bought from Mr Fothergill.

The packet was labelled 'Sedum pulchellum'. I hd no sedums at the time so was quite excited to get some from seed.

The resultant 5-6 plants did not look like sedums.They didn't like the sun so I eventually planted them out under the Acacia tree.

For all the world my Sedum pulchellums look like ferns. Can anyone advise me on what fern they might be?

I added the photo to my May album, Martin. Is that any good?

I never in my life grown ferns from seeds...They growed in my orchid pots by them selfs,but like it,,never.

Nice fern but definitely not a sedum!

Thanks, Martin. I have taken note : )

No, definitely not a sedum, Myrtle!
