Sedum spectabile | Autumn JoyRegular price $12.00 Save $-12.00
Autumn Joy is a popular upright variety of stonecrop, which is known as Hylotephium but more commonly known as Sedum. Sedums are a fantastic plant that are extremely tolerant of sandy or gravelly soil and dry conditions so they make an excellent subject for a rock garden or any position in your garden as long as it is well-drained and sunny. No fertilising is necessary
The leaves are fleshy and succulent like and the first flowers appear in autumn with flat heads of flowers that gradually open to produce pinkish flowers that gradually turn to bronze then rust red. Bees and Bumblebees love the flowers of this plant. Can also be used as cut flowers.
You can cut the flower stems down in autumn or they can also be left on the plant to provide winter interest and birds will feed on the dried flower heads. Plants can be divided in spring if they become woody and overgrown. Sedums tolerate a wide range of temperatures thriving in extreme heat and often they continue to flower right up until the first frosts. Sedums are very hardy and can cope with freezing temperatures.
