Plant Details

One of the most popular sedums, making an excellent autumn border plant.

 In September and October masses of stems topped with wide flat heads of dark pink, almost red, starry flowers.

If left standing, the dead flowerheads add winter interest.

Drought tolerant, slug resistant and as tough as old boots.

Height and spread: 50 x 60cm

Common name(s): Stonecrop

Now reclassified as Hylotelephium spectabile 'Autum Joy' but we are slow to change! 

The name Sedum is from the Latin 'sedeo' (I sit), because they grow on walls. Stonecrop because they crop on walls. They like dry, sunny conditions and are fully hardy. Very attractive to bees and butterflies.

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
