Sedum spectabile ‘Autumn Fire’


Showy Stonecrop

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.485.930


The border varieties of Stonecrop are a dependable choice for the late summer and fall garden, offering foliage interest earlier in the season, then a colourful display of flowers in the fall. This Canadian selection is an improvement on the older Autumn Joy, with a taller habit and stronger, less floppy stems. Plants begin to produce green broccoli-like buds in mid-summer, which gradually open into enormous dusty-rose flower heads, finally deepening to rich rusty-red during autumn. Even the dead flower heads have good winter effect. An outstanding cut flower, and also attractive to butterflies. Registered with COPF: royalty required for propagation.
