Identification for this Sedum please.
Received this from a friend in Holland just as coral sedum I think. First two photos are rooted pieces, last one is the actual plant, although it has been a bit damaged.

No, sorry Bluespruce, I don't know what it is but I want it!!!!
Is it actually a Sedum sp. or is this just it's common name?

Don't know Bulbaholic, I just can't find a reference to it anywhere. I can always send you a piece to root if you like, as you probably know it's very easy.

No, I don't know, Blue, I have no idea what it is. I am hoping that someone else does!

I think it is Sedum rupestre monstrosum cristatum. , it seems a suitable name anyway. I had it ion ce but it died on me.

Gosh!! I'm with's fantastic....I want one!! LOL
I think Poaannua has cracked it. That certainly looks like it from the web photos.

Poaanua & Gilli, thanks, I couldn't find any photos on the web, but i did come across a nursery reference in the US that said it does have a habit of reverting, and that would account for my main plant looking the way it does. will pot up the rest of all the best bits and scrap the plant. Haven't checked the availability in the UK, but if anyone here wants a piece just let me know by PM.

I wouldn't scap the whole plant as these monstrous shoots are usually generated periodically from none monstrous shoots. The reason? Because the monstrous shoots eventually die. At least that has been my experience.
