Minaret

American English Dictionary ....slender tower with balconies.
I can see that when I look at this pot of sedum(s) I purchased
at the local Garden Tour this year.  I did an online 'lookup'
and discovered there are over 1700 varieties of sedum and 
there is a Sedum Society where members from around the world
exchange seed. I am sure I will be obtaining more sedum.
