Autumn Joy Sedum Sedum spectabile 'Autumn Joy' #2
This sturdy perennial is as tough as they come. Clumping foliage displays large, plate-like flower clusters that start pink, then gracefully age to rosy russet-red in the fall. A fine addition to the rock garden or mixed border. Succulent foliage will die back to the ground in cold winter regions, but will re-emerge in early spring.
Easily grown in lean, very well-drained soil; benefits from a gravel mulch. Water regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Avoid excessive winter moisture. Fertilize in spring. Clip spent flowers to promote continued bloom. Remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge.
