šŸ¤·PLANTšŸ¤·STONE CROP HYLOTELEPHIUM SIEBOLDII Crassulaceae ✅✅✅



The variety of this sedum that is usually grown is the hardy, long-lived ‘Medio-variegatum.’ It has slender stems, which begin to grow upright but soon arch over. They trail to about 10in/25cm, making this a good plant for a hanging basket.




The fleshy round leaves, with lightly scalloped edges, are carried in whorls of three; they are steely blue-gray tinged with pink and have a cream central splash or stripe. Heads of small pink flowers are borne at the ends of the stems in late summer or early fall.
