It's that time of year-Autumn Joy

I love this time of year when Sedum Autumn Joy is blooming. It is a beautiful plant, good bloomer, always reliable. Cannot believe summer is coming to a close, but time moves on and autumn is beginning :)

Sedum Autumn Joy

Autumn Stonecrop

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.485.340

Autumn Joy is by far the most popular of stonecrop, a familiar sight when it begins to produce green broccoli-like buds in mid-summer, which gradually open into dusty-pink flower heads, finally deepening to rich bronzy-red. Even the dead flower heads have a good winter effect. In rich soils, plants may be pinched in June to prevent floppiness. An awesome perennial!

Enjoy the Earth and Happy Fall!! Martha
