The established perennial garden of my first home introduced me to ‘Autumn Joy’. This drought-tolerant stonecrop, as it is also called, was a reliable fall bloomer that added a lovely hint of pinkish red to my late summer and fall garden. 

A sedum was one of my first plant purchases for my current garden. I bought it at a plant sale, so I’m not exactly sure what cultivar it is, but I love its deep pinkish-burgundy hue. And the bees love it! A Sedum Sunsparkler ‘Lime Zinger’ made it into one of my fall containers, and I’ve added a couple of really interesting varieties to my list for next year – one is a rich chocolate brown and the other has variegated yellow and green leaves with delicate pink blooms.

Sedum 'Autumn Charm'

I think ‘Autumn Charm’ is a bit of a lame name for this beauty. I need to find a place for this in my garden!

This sedum was a wee little thing when I planted it, but now it's a voluptuous, dependable fall bloomer.

This Sedum Sunsparkler 'Lime Zinger' is better suited for borders as it's lower-growing than other varieties.

I think I also need to make some space for this 'Chocolate Drop'!
