We've been building our stock for years, but this one was well worth the wait! This variegated sport of top-seller 'Autumn Joy', discovered by Intrinsic Perennial Gardens, is very stable and incredibly showy. The grey-green leaves have butter yellow, serrated edges and form an upright clump just like its parent.
In August, panicles of cream buds top the entire clump, then open to light pink flowers in September, followed by russet red seed heads in October.
Tall, upright sedums form substantial clumps of foliage which can be substituted for shrubs in the landscape. Their stout, sturdy stems support the massive flower heads which develop in summer and burst into bloom in fall. If left standing, they provide winter interest and food for birds.
