‘Autumn Joy’ Sedum produces delicate bright-pink flowers on large heads that age into a beautiful copper color as fall approaches. ‘Autumn Joy’ is a stout, spreading plant with succulent foliage that pairs well with ornamental grasses and against the deep-green leaves of summer perennials.
Easy to care for, very adaptable, and a popular stand-in for shrubs, this sedum lasts and lasts when other plants begin to wane.
Sedums, like Hostas and have become staples in American perennial gardens in recent years.
And this one, Autumn Joy, is the one responsible. This incredible plant is now at or near the top of everyone’s list of the best perennial flowers of them all. Nothing beats it for late color in the border.
