Green/brown/red succulent that's excellent for ground cover. Spreads out well and is about 15cm tall at some points.
Hot hillside in full sun with regular watering
Thank you for the ID suggestion, halfkneegrow. It may be it but I'm still not sure. There are so many similar Sedum that it's difficult to narrow the species down without the flowers. I think I'll update this to just say Sedum sp.
That's horrible! I hope he makes a full recovery.
So far mine hasn't dug up anything important. However, a dear friend of mine almost lost her dog because someone apparently gassed moles a few houses down. He was very ill for a couple weeks - and then was re poisoned after recovering the first time. Mostly better now.
:-) yes our cute doggie is a digger but in his defense, there was a gopher hole next to it. Bad gopher!
bad doggy! LOL
It's a sort of Sedum
Well the dog dug up this plant before any flowers emerged so I guess it'll remain a mystery :(
I would have said kalanchoe at first but there are very fine hairs on the edges of the leaves which kalanchoe don't usually have. Sedum is most likely but that's a huge family! Hmm...I love a challenge. :D
Yay, its working again. Last image compares the plant size with a penny.
I just took an image with a penny but I'm unable to upload it for some reason. I'll try again later. Thank you for the suggestion! I'll use that tip for other small findings when I can.
How big are the leaves?Can you add a picture with a coin or something as reference
The determining factor may end up being the flowers in which I haven't ever seen any although this is a small plant in an inconspicuous area in the yard so I may not have ever noticed.
I couldn't find the variety either, but here's a site: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sedum
It's Sedum for sure.
Very possible. I was thinking Sedum but can't find this particular variety.
