Hylotelephium spectabile (formerly called Sedum spectabile) is a species of flowering plant in the stonecrop family Crassulaceae, native to China and Korea. Its common names include showy stonecrop,[2] ice plant,[3] and butterfly stonecrop.[4] Growing to 45 cm (18 in) tall and broad, it is an herbaceous perennial with alternate, simple, toothed leaves on erect, unbranched succulent stems. The star-shaped pink flowers are borne in flat cymes 15 cm (6 in) across, in fall (autumn).[5]

The specific epithet spectabile means “showy”.[6]
This plant is valued in cultivation as drought-tolerant groundcover.[citation needed] Numerous cultivars have been produced.

yes. seems so though the trade shows show many colors of flowers

Yes! I did not find in the efi for comparison !

Flower colors in hydrangea depend on the different metals and ph of soil.
may be this plant … or all sedum have that property, I don’t know.
but I do see videos or pics of sedum plants used as a carpet on sloping roofs in Europe and England and they tend to have different colors not only of flowers but also leaves. leaves may be because they are young new leaves but the flowers? somewhere there must be a paper two.. some of our members esp the grad students might know??? or taxonomists who read a lot of botany papers ?
