Description
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.
