USDA Plant Hardiness Zones

To help gardeners understand which plants will grow well for them, the entire USA has been segmented into ‘Plant Hardiness Zones’. Knowing your zone number is helpful when shopping for plants because:

  • Cold-area gardeners can avoid buying plants that simply won’t survive their lowest winter temperatures.
  • Warm-area gardeners can steer clear of plants that need a period of cold weather in order to bloom again.

Sedum Autumn Joy 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. (Stonecrop)

Plant Information

SedumSedums, 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.

Photo at right: Sedums add color from midsummer through early fall, when most other flowers are waning. And Autumn Joy, particularly, lights up with bright pink to orangey flowerheads giving any garden a needed lift for a long period. Like other valuable mainstays of perennial display, the bloom lasts for weeks and weeks.

In the photo, you see Sedum Autumn Joy just behind the garden seat, and also peeking up into the photo in the foreground. This photo was taken in September, showing the great combination of this Sedum with the lovely Aster Frikarti Monch--the lush blue daisies. Also still adding color are some late coneflowers and other perennials. But the fresh color is all with the asters and the Sedum--carrying this beautiful garden into fall with full bloom.

        Comments about American Meadows Sedum Autumn Joy:

        I have these in two places and enjoy them immensely. They look good all through the summer and give beautiful blooms at the end of the year. Leave the flowers on all winter and in spring you'll have dried flowers to cut off and use in crafts. It's a no-fail perennial!

          A great foursquare plant for the perennial border with all season interest. Flower heads are attractive both in bud and in bloom; good late color and attracts butterflies.

          Q & A

          Plant With These:

          USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

          To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

          • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
          • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
