And the serious collectors of course tend to be very focussed- I could never settle on one category of plants, let alone a genus  ;D

LOL- that's why I usually label my photos with every plant clearly visible in them- but I thought that one was far enough back to ignore! its a Polemonium boreale seedling.. I'll show some better pics in another thread...

I had probably not noticed it if you hadn't mentioned it, Rick!

The only "rosularia" I ever had turned out to be Sedum pachyclados (!)
I am pleased to say that I now have a Jovibarba that rivals your luscious species form, Cohan.

Nice plants both of you have!
I am at my summerhouse at the moment, to do a job, but am disappointed when inspecting my plants. A herd of sheep has been grazing here all fall and damaged a lot. The owner does know about it but doesn't a damned thing about it >:( >:( >:(
