Hylotelephium is a genus of about 33 species of drought-tolerant herbaceous perennials native to Asia, Europe, and North America. They are commonly called stonecrop and are excellent plants for fall gardens. Many species and hybrids were formerly placed in the genus Sedum.
Many hylotelephiums and sedums are commonly called stonecrop because of the frequent sighting of the genus in the wild growing on rocks or stony ledges.
AUTUMN FIRE is a clump-forming perennial with tiny, star-like flowers that emerge pink, gradually change to deep rose-red, and then coppery-rust in autumn as they die. Flowers appear in large, 3-6" across, flattened heads (cymes) atop stems of grayish-green, fleshy, rounded, succulent-like leaves growing in upright to slightly spreading clumps, typically to 2' tall. It is commonly called stonecrop because of the frequent sighting of the genus in the wild growing on rocks or stony ledges. Attractive to butterflies throughout the growing season. Foliage and dead inflorescences persist well into the winter, providing some additional interest.
