About this item
Sedum is a perennial with thick, succulent leaves, fleshy stems, and clusters of flowers. There are many types of sedums/garden succulents, yet all are easy to care for and grow in American gardens. Sometimes called 'fat plants,' these very popular and trendy favorites have some parts that are more than normally thickened and fleshy, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. Sedums are also commonly known as Stonecrop. A very dependable choice for the garden that offers foliage interest early in the season and a colorful flower display later. Sedum Herbstfreude is also known as sedum Autumn Joy and is a most popular garden succulent. This hardy, upright variety sports light green leaves and deep rose flowers that age to a beautiful bronze later in the growing season. These tall upright Sedums form large clumps of foliage that add a considerable dimension in the garden landscape as its massive flower heads burst into color in fall. If left standing - which is what we recommend - they provide much winter interest and food for birds. A very valuable plant!
