Hylotelephium Spectabile Or Sedum Spectabile

Today I want to tell you about a plant that I love for its simplicity and bright bloom in the fall, when many plants finish flowering in my garden.  

Let me remind you of this plant because I have no doubt that you all know it well.


The ice plant or Hylotelephium Spectabile is an old-fashioned perennial plant. Formerly called Sedum Spectabile, it is notable for the fall. The sedum is a succulent with fleshy leaves and flat, nectar-rich flower heads that are extremely attractive to late-flying butterflies and bees.
 

I grow Hylotelephium spectabile ‘Carl’ which has blue-green rosettes of foliage over which dense green buds form, opening in masses of tiny bright pink flowers.




Sedum or Hylotelephium Spectabile are solar perennials that are easy to grow and are a distinctive feature in late summer and fall. Sedum flowers look especially good in grass.


I want to add that this plant looks great from spring, because their foliage is attractive in itself. In the spring, the flower heads are green, and from August they bloom completely. You can cut off dry flower heads and display them in a vase for months.

Do you grow Hylotelephium Spectabile in your garden? What is your experience?

    1. У меня нет стелющегося седума, Надежда. Надо будет обязательно его посадить, мне седумы тоже нравятся.

  2. It is a wonderful plant - beautiful and easy to grow. I have 'Carl' too and as Carl also was the name of my late father-in-law I like it a bit extra.

  3. Sedums are excellent plants for year around interest! I love them and grow them a lot!
    And they are very valuable source of nectar for late foraging pollinators.

  13. What a beautiful plant, Nadezda, it's not surprising that also the butterflies and bees love them. :)
    I have only some Hylotelephium telephium (small). I'm trying to introduce succulents to my tiny, new rock-garden.
    Have a lovely new week and take care!

    1. I believe this sedum is well suited for a rock garden, Sara. Easy to grow and can flower in dry soil. I'm sure your new garden looks very good.

  16. Sedum is very popular in Polish gardens. It is an extremely decorative perennial that beautifully decorates the garden at the turn of summer and autumn.
    Stay healthy!

  17. Hi Nadezda,
    These flowers are really beautiful, I didn't know them.
    I had seen the same family but it was Sedum Palmeri, whose flowers were yellow.
    Have a nice weekend
