Sedum 'Autumn Fire' is one of Pam's Faves this season...this is what she has to say:
I love all Sedums and ‘Autumn Fire’ jumped right to the top of the charts when I found out it has a tight growing habit. It also has thicker foliage than S. ‘Autumn Joy’ which I already love. It sealed the deal with its longer blooming time.
'Autumn Fire' offers large flower heads that bloom for more than four weeks. The rose-pink flower heads make lovely cut or dried flowers.
Sedums are tough, drought tolerant, easy-to-grow perennials that feature star-shaped flowers in clusters blooming on fleshy-leaved plants ranging from mat-forming ground covers to clump-forming upright mounds. Their flowers are attractive to butterflies and spent flower clusters typically retain their shape and add some winter interest to garden areas.
