Sempervivum and Sedum are the cornerstone genera of hardy succulents, so let's have a look at the most popular of these fun plants.

One of the most beautiful features of this perennial is its fall color. When sited properly, the foliage turns beautiful shades of pink, red, yellow, and orange. Often, the plant is still flowering when its fall coloring begins to appear. Full sun causes the edges of the leaves to be tinted red.

It has a mounding spreading habit and is a relatively slow grower. Great for rock gardens, containers, rock walls, front of flower beds. Will allow bulbs to grow up through it in the spring.

I am addicted to this plant. it is so incredibly beautiful, (contrast coloring, thick leaves), it does not look real. I find my plants prefer heavier/frequent watering (10a), ceramic pots, full sun. I fertilize lightly all year round.

We inherited this plant from my wife's auntie, who had it for years. It has survived a move from a temperate to a colder climate where it has thrived on neglect. Propagation seems to be a very hit and miss experience. Its very drought tolerant and attractive to spiders. Quiet happy in a pot and a great conversation piece.

As stated above. this one is, indeed, hard to find.
Mine is simply a sport of my green S. sieboldii. I'd looked for YEARS and found this plant with the variegated sport within a display of many regular S. sieboldii.
Have grown it 3 years, with varying temps, both hot and well below zero.
I've found it difficult to propagate, though I'll continue to try!

I have several sedums in my garden, and this one is at the top of my favorites list. I bought it a couple of years ago, before I was keeping good records, and I can't remember where I bought it. Luckily, it's doing well, and a piece that broke off has started another plant after I stuck it in the dirt.

If you see this sedum at your local nursery, don't hesitate to buy it, because it seems to be a little hard to find.

This is just like the species except in the cream-colored areas in the middle of the leaves.

It often sports to the non-variegated form vegetatively---to keep the variegation in the long term, it's important to cut out the occasional non-variegated shoots as soon as you notice them.

This is the same as S. sieboldii f. variegatum.

Very easy to grow and propagate. Excellent for late blooming in the rock garden! Good texture and color. I live in zone 6 Toronto, Ontario this plant is very winter hardy in pot outdoors over winter.

Stonecrop Mediovariegatum is a groundcover with rounded blue-green leaves marbled with purple and creamy white.

It is easy to grow in any ordinary, well-drained location, and tolerates heat, drought and poor soil.
