Hylotelephium erythrostictum 'Mediovariegatum', formerly known as Sedum erythrostictum 'Mediovariegatum', is a clump-forming succulent with thick, erect stems and beautiful pale yellow leaves edged in green. It grows up to 18 inches (45 cm) tall with a spread of 24 inches (60 cm). Leaves are elliptic with serrated edges, and some may revert to green. Flowers are star-shaped, white to bright pink, and appear in summer to fall in flattened heads, up to 6 inches (15 cm) in diameter, at the top of the stems.

How to Grow and Care for Hylotelephium erythrostictum 'Mediovariegatum'

Light: 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.

Soil: These succulents do not need rich soil, but they do need excellent drainage. Choose a commercial potting mix for succulents, or make one yourself.

Hardiness: Hylotelephium erythrostictum 'Mediovariegatum' can withstand temperatures as low as -40 to 30 °F (-40 to -1.1 °C), USDA hardiness zones 3a to 9b.

Watering: Hylotelephiums are drought-tolerant once established. The best way to water a Hylotelephium is to use the "soak and dry" method. Get the soil completely wet and then wait until it is dry before watering again.

Fertilizing: Feed annually with a balanced fertilizer. Apply the fertilizer to the soil in spring as new growth appears, according to package directions.

Repotting: Plants in containers do require little more care than those in gardens. Repot your plants when they outgrow their current pot by moving them out to a larger container to hold the plant better.

Propagation: Hylotelephiums can be grown from seeds, division, or stem cuttings.
