Sedum Autumn Joy
Sedum Autumn Joy is a large sedum, a succulent plant that blooms pretty pink flowers in the fall. It is very easy to maintain, just remove dead foliage in early spring. When the Sedum is young and just planted, fertilize lightly with organic fertilizer, such as Espoma PT18 Plant Tone, 18-Pound. Attract bees to your garden with Sedum Autumn Joy! We have noticed deer damage on our Sedum Autumn Joy, so if you spot deer damage, we recommend an excellent deer repellent below.
We love Sedum plants because they are very easy to maintain; provide beautiful fall blooms, and interesting leaf textures and colors. Stonecrop Sedum has cobalt blue leaves with magenta blooms. The leaves feel good to the touch. If you lightly touch the leaves, they slightly tickle your hand! This is a perfect example of letting nature absorb your stress. Stonecrop Sedum also re-seeds very easily. You will notice new plants blooming in areas close to the original plant. If you like free plants, you can always transplant self-seeding plants into a pot or another garden location. For details on transplanting plants, click here.
It’s early Fall and our Sedum Matrona is in full bloom! It’s very easy to maintain …fertilize once per year with organic fertilizer in fall or spring. It has beautiful pale pink blooms, and deep green/burgundy succulent leaves. We love Sedum because they are easy to maintain and provide fantastic fall color!
Sedum Matrona is much larger this season due to abundant rains this past Spring!
3-n-1 Combo of Sedum, Barberry Shrub, and Azaleas
Sedum in a small pot is beginning to bloom in the Fall. Combination of azaleas in the background and barberry bush in the foreground, with Sedum Matrona blooming, makes a nice variety of plant colors and textures. Sedum flowers attract bees and butterflies. We have had some deer damage on sedum plants, so if you spot deer damage, such as branches that look like they have been chewed off, we recommend an excellent deer repellent below.
Bonus Tip for Beginner Gardeners: Sedum are very easy to grow and require very little maintenance. They like full sun, and a little organic fertilizer every now and then. Your reward for very little work is beautiful Autumn blooms! To see more pics and videos of Sedum, click here.
