Hylotelephium Overview

Hylotelephium is a genus containing succulent perennials with flat umbels of small star-shaped flowers in summer to autumn. They are native to Asia, Europe and North America. Many of these plants were previously part of the genus Sedum, and they are often still commonly called Sedum. Commonly known as Stonecrop or Sedum (although they are in a separate genus from true Sedums), they are popular garden plants, grown for their clumps of drought-tolerant, fleshy leaves and flat umbels of tiny star-shaped flowers in late summer and autumn. Hylotelephium are best grown in full sun or light shade. They are a good source of late-season nectar for bees. All parts of the plant may cause skin irritation and are toxic if ingested.
