Yes, this is *Sedum ewersii* but I'm afraid there have been major taxonomic and nomenclatural changes in Crassulaceae. Many higher mountain Sedums are now within the genus *Rhodiola* whilst this is now *Hylotelephium ewersii (ledeb.) H.Ohba* - except I see this is not an accepted name within 'The Plant List', so must check this out. It was the name used by Dickore & Klimes in their checklist of Ladakh flora.
Stewart knew it as *S.ewersii* - a very common rock crevice plant, chiefly in the temperate zone @ 1000, mostly 1500-4500m. It grows on the Rohtang Pass and I know it from Ladakh. Collet did not find it at Shimla but higher at Matiana and Narkunda. 'Flowers of Lahaul-Spiti' record it (as Hylotelephium) as common on rocks & boulders. *I see there is **Hylotelephium* *pakistanicum* (G.R.Sarwar) G.R.Sarwar as an accepted name - this does not gives *H.ewersii* as a synonym but when google images is clicked various photos of the latter species appear along with a line drawing of it! In FOP *H.pakistanicum* is separated on the basis of being glandular-hairy (and some other minor characteristics). Would need to check this further to see if such a separation is justified at species level?
