How to Grow and Care
These popular garden plants are easy to grow. Hylotelephiums are ideal for that part of your garden that gets too much sun or too little water to grow anything else. They also grow well in containers.
Hylotelephiums prefer full sun. They tolerate light to partial shade in hot summer climates but will produce weak, floppy growth when grown in too much shade or overly rich soils.
These succulents do not need rich soil, but they need excellent drainage. Choose a commercial potting mix for succulents, or make one yourself.
Hylotelephiums are drought-tolerant once established. The best way to water a Hylotelephium is to use the "soak and dry" method. First, get the soil completely wet, and then wait until it is dry before watering again.
Feed annually with a balanced fertilizer. According to package directions, apply the fertilizer to the soil in spring as new growth appears.
Hylotelephiums can be grown from seeds, division, or stem cuttings.
