Live-forever was originally classified as Sedum telephium. Sedum is an unnatural taxonomic grouping containing species that are not evolutionarilly related. In1977 Sedum telephium and 27 other species were transferred into the new genus Hylotelephium based on several morphological characteristics and on chromosome number. Later molecular phylogenetic studies confirmed the separation. The new genus has been widely but not universally accepted.
