More - great colony!

I have a small plant that is only about an inch wide. I've had it for about 10 years, it sends shooters out to spread and has tiny hairs on the leaves. When it blooms, which is not often, it gets small pale green/whitish star shaped flowers. I've been looking for a long time for an accurate ID. Some say it looks like a pinguicula, and it is VERY close in my opinion, but I've never seen it produce the sticky glue stuff. Some say its a sedum, but I've looked and have not been able to find an exact match. The leaves are very soft to touch.
Thank you for your time!

I know this one!

Someone else just asked me about the same plant, and after some digging we decided that it was Rosularia sedoides 'Alba'.

Here's an image search with Bing for more. Have a look and compare them; Rosularia sedoides image search on Bing.

Thank you

Hello,and thank you very much for the ID of this plant. I've been looking for a very long time. I've had people tell me a few different names, and they've been close, but not exactly right. So i'm praying this time it is! Thank you again!

Time for some research

Now it's in your court - that image search might be exactly the right thing, or at least point to other options. Careful - this could be a rabbit hole!

You're right
by: Nikki

You're definitely right about the rabbit hole thing. I keep finding them that look very close, but just not exactly right. Mostly the ones I'm finding have more petals then mine, or the petals are pointed more where mine are rounded and look a little plumper. ugh!

The joys of research

Nikki LOL! That's why people get so fascinated and end up making it their life's work.
