Sedum, Autumn Joy


 Description:  Autumn Joy Sedum is a drought & deer proof perennial that makes a great statement in any sun to part shade perennial garden. Thick, sturdy, wilt-proof leaves give way to massive heads of reddish/pink flowers in late summer that serve as a magnet to butterflies. Flowers continue to darken into the fall months on Autumn Joy Sedum. This perennial stands up to heat & humidity effortlessly. Autumn Joy Sedum looks great in or out of bloom. Even the spent flower heads have tremendous winter interest.
