Sedum 'Autumn Joy'
(Autumn Stonecrop) Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’ has light green leaves and strong stems to support the large flower heads which develop in the summer. This popular, hardy perennial adds a burst of color to your fall landscape. They turn a deep rose in the fall and age to an attractive bronze. A 1993 Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit winner, ‘Autumn Joy’ will add interest into the winter if left standing since the seed heads will provide food for the birds.
