Autumn Joy Sedum

Sedum spectabile ‘Autumn Joy’ 



Get consistent color, without the hard work. Autumn Joy Sedum delivers rich color and texture, summer through fall, without the fuss of more delicate perennials. This Sedum emerges in late spring, gracing garden beds with a bright green color and rich succulent look. As the season progresses, the plant forms dense bud clusters, finally bursting with color as summer comes to a close. Flower heads emerge a pale blush color, transitioning to a deep, rosy russet in early fall. But the Autumn Joy Sedum’s benefits don’t stop there – when the stalks dry in winter, you can leave them intact until spring, for a pop of color and texture year-round. The Autumn Joy Sedum is perfect for rock gardens or mixed borders, or even patio containers. 

While other perennials are winding down for the season, Autumn Joy Sedum is just getting started – perfect for four-season gardens. And its flowers are great for cut flower arrangements or for drying and arranging – make bouquets for your home or share with a friend! • Rich color- summer through fall • Drought-resistant • Attracts butterflies and honeybees • Great for cut flower arrangements • Perfect for borders and containers. 


In the garden, till the soil in your desired planting area, wet it, and place your Autumn Joy Sedum. Water after planting. In a pot, you need to cover only half the soil surface with your Autumn Joy – it will fill in and even grow over the sides in a few months. 


Water your Autumn Joy Sedum after planting, and regularly during the first growing season to establish. Avoid excess moisture in winter. Natural rainfall will take care of the rest. 


Fertilize in spring, and clip spent flowers to promote blooming. Remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge in spring.
