Sedum Autumn Joy
A Beautiful Garden Red-head
Sedum Autumn Joy (SEDUM spectabile Autumn Joy, also known as Sedum ‘herbstfreude’) is one of the most exciting and hardy garden perennials that you can plant in your garden. It blends so well with other plants and makes such a statement that you’ll wonder why you’ve never grown it before!
Autumn Joy is one of the most well-known and widely planted of all the sedums. It is easily one of the finest of all upright Sedums. The succulent-like leaves are a charming green all season. (In milder climates, all year!) The umbrella-like flower heads are pink and change to a rosy red and finally a deep garnet in fall.
The flowers bloom from July to September and stay in bloom until frost. If you leave the plant alone, the flower heads turn a dark brown and look great covered in winter snow. You can clip off the flowers in spring when the new growth starts. The plant is 18" tall and spreads to about 24", so it’s just right for your perennial border.
Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’ needs to be planted in full sun in well-drained soil. It will tolerate most soil types and is drought resistant.
‘Autumn Joy’ is a great choice for beds and borders and excellent as a cut flower. It is also a great butterfly and bee attractor. Don’t waste another day without a few of these in your garden. Order from us today!
