David - we all know you don't have to prove anything to anyone. 

Sad when people want to stir, isn't it?

Do you grow different varieties each year or do you stick with favourites? I grew Cathy last year - a cream with lovely scent, but was a little disappointed with the colour sometimes- it was a bit 'muddy'. Is there a white or cream variety you can recommend?

pretty soil

There are different types of Sedum Tracey. The ones we've been looking at here are commonly called Iceplants and have  flat heads of hundreds of tiny pink/red flowers on a long stem like in Stacey's pix. There are also low growing  sedums commonly called Stonecrop. They're the ones you can use for 'green' roofs. Sedum 'Acre' is the common one with yellow flowers but there's loads of varieties. Perhaps that's  the type you have?
