Sedum spectabile ‘Autumn Fire’

Showy Stonecrop

$ 11.95

Item #: 1689
Pot Size: full quart


Plant Description

Sedum ‘Autumn Fire’ has big, domed clusters of densely packed, dusty pink flowers in late summer that age to salmon bronze, then deep rusty red in the fall. When in full flower, you cannot see the blue-green succulent leaves at all. This is a garden workhorse. From the interesting developing spring buds, to the broccoli head-like summer growth, to the outstanding floral display, ‘Autumn Fire’ is substantial and attractive, and will be attracting myriads of pollinators as well. Even the dried dead flower heads when left standing, have a good winter effect. Put it front and center in your sunny, dry garden.
