Sedum spectabile 'Autumn Joy,' is a perennial classic renowned for its late-season beauty and enduring appeal. This beloved member of the Stonecrop family graces gardens with its unique succulent foliage and transforms into a spectacular display of changing hues as autumn approaches.

Seasonal Colour Transformation: 'Autumn Joy' lives up to its name, treating your garden to a captivating display of colour throughout the seasons. Starting with blue-green succulent leaves in spring, the foliage matures to a lush green in summer, setting the stage for the star attraction – the changing hues of late summer and fall.

Floral Umbels: As summer transitions to autumn, 'Autumn Joy' sedum unveils large, broccoli-like flower heads known as umbels. These begin as soft, muted pink buds and gradually shift to a dusty rose hue, creating a stunning contrast against the green foliage. The flowers persist well into the fall, ensuring a long-lasting and evolving show.

Drought-Tolerant and Easy Care: One of the standout qualities of 'Autumn Joy' is its adaptability and low-maintenance nature. This sedum thrives in well-drained soil and is remarkably drought-tolerant, making it a resilient choice for gardens where water conservation is essential.

Upright and Sturdy Growth: 'Autumn Joy' Sedum forms a sturdy, upright clump that reaches a mature height of 18-24 inches. Its architectural form adds structure to the garden, and the robust stems prevent flopping, allowing the plant to maintain its elegant appearance even as the flower heads gain weight.

Versatile Garden Companion: Whether employed as a stand-alone specimen, featured in mass plantings, or included in mixed perennial beds, 'Autumn Joy' seamlessly integrates with various garden styles. Its ability to attract pollinators adds an ecological dimension to its ornamental appeal.
