Autumn Joy Sedum

Sedum spectabile 'Autumn Joy'

SKU
07074
This sturdy perennial is as tough as they come. Clumping foliage displays large, plate-like flower clusters that start pink, then gracefully age to rosy russet-red in the fall. A fine addition to the rock garden or mixed border. Succulent foliage will die back to the ground in cold winter regions, but will re-emerge in early spring.
