I have an Autumn Joy Sedum on my deck. I talk about it every year as it is one of many favorites in my garden. The plant has different phases. The photo above is the final burgundy phase. My favorite. Sort of a heart shape. The sedum starts out as a green plant as shown below.
As the season progresses the cycle begins. This sedum is outgrowing the container. I will probably plant it in Dustin’s garden.
Autumn Joy stonecrop bears an unusual flower well worth growing in its own right. Flowers are sort of clumped together in flat-topped heads that are 3 inches or more across. Autumn Joy’s flowers, which start out green will become pink, then eventually burgundy. The butterflies love this plant. The blooms are flat so it makes sort of a landing pad for them as shown below. I took the photo below last year on my deck.
I am now waiting on the butterflies to enjoy both my Tiger Lilies and my Sedum. As soon as they do I will share photos with you. Have a great day everyone
