Sedum problem. This seems to have happened almost overnight. Is it Botrytis? Can it be saved or must it be disposed of please.

On plant Sedum

More like mildew. Sedums are a bit iffy about fungal sprays, so probably not a good idea to use one. Try the 9 parts water to 1 part full cream milk spray on part of the plant first.
Otherwise find a clean bit of the plant and use it as a cutting.

It looks like mildew. I'd cut it back to the ground and see if it regrows. Succulents like gritty soil and plenty of air circulation so it may be a good idea to move it. It isn't in the right place right next to that other plant.

Thanks both. I think I will cut it right down to the ground, then cut away some of that Bowles's Mauve plant that's to the left of it. I never use chemical sprays of any sort so may try the milk/water mix.

How do I say thanks?
