What could be better than Sedum Autumn Joy, renowned for its ease of care and splendid long-season blooms?
A variegated sport of Autumn Joy, of course, with cream-edged foliage! Autumn Charm, also known as Lajos, keeps its variegation beautifully from spring till frost, adding a smart look to the perennial border or even containers. It has the same bloom strength, butterfly appeal, and ease of care as its famous parent, and makes an indispensable source of colour three seasons out of the year!
The blooms begin on this plant as milky-white buds that turn cream and finally pink. By midsummer they have opened to bright pink blossoms, which then darken to a rich rosy-red as summer turns to Autumn. Cut all you like for indoor arrangements, or leave them on the plant and let them dry magnificently at season's end. After the butterflies depart for the season, birds come to feast on the dried seedheads, and they even remain to catch the first falling snow! Very showy and so easy to grow, this Sedum puts up with poor soil, heat, humidity, cold, and even drought. It is a great gift to gardeners, and belongs in a place of honour in your landscape.
