Hylotelephium sieboldii is a species of flowering plant in the Crassulaceae family, native to Japan. Growing to 10 cm high by 20 cm wide, this trailing deciduous perennial produces its round glaucous leaves in whorls of 3 around the delicate stems.
Sedum sieboldii (aka October Daphne or Hylotelephium sieboldii) is a deciduous succulent plant hailing from Japan. This flowering bright pink plant is named after a German researcher of Japanese botany during the 1800s, Franz Philippe von Siebold. The Sieboldii is a small, attractive plant with a low, spreading growth habit. Sieboldii grows in attractive, circular mounds and sends out horizontal branches from a central crown. The blue-green leaves are about three quarters of an inch around and grow in sets of three. Leaf edgings are deep pink, and this flower color intensifies as the growing season progresses into late summer and fall. When the plant gets the right amount of light, fall leaf color may be pink, orange, yellow or even bright red.
