Sedum Sieboldii Medio-Variegatum (Variegated Ice Plant, October Plant)
(Crassuluceae) origin: Japan
An extremely easy and attractive plant, which is also widely used in hanging baskets and out-of-doors window-boxes in summer. A bushy plant with long, thin stems surrounded at intervals by round, blue-grey leaves, variegated cream at the centre. If the plant becomes dry out-of-doors in hot sunshine, the leaves take on a deep reddish tinge. Pinkish-red flowers-appear in the autumn before the plant dies down. The plant may then be left dry for the winter in a coolor outside in a sheltered position. In early March repot into a pot one size larger and water, and growth will recommence.
Will withstand any conditions and treatment, from sunlight to shade and fromto drought, but ideally the soil should be kept just moist and allowed to dry out completely between waterings. Will do best if kept in a cool place, but will tolerate a hot, dry atmosphere.
