When the rest of the garden is winding down, Autumn Joy is just getting started in fall with bright coral/pink flowers that later turn a beautiful rust color for winter interest. This hardy perennial is drought tolerant and not fussy about soil conditions as long as it is not too wet. The plants are just short of 2 feet tall and will form 2 foot wide clumps. The little mounds of foliage are also interesting in spring. All the care that is needed is to remove the old stalks near the ground in early spring before new growth starts. Bees also love this plant and it provides food for them when there isn’t much else. Sedum needs full sun.
