Sedum telephium ‘Autumn Joy’ syn Hylotelephium telephium ‘Autumn Joy’
Herbaceous clumping perennial to 60cm with ‘nominally edible’ fleshy leaves (think famine food – good to know they are there if you absolutely needed them!). In early autumn large flat clusters of starry flowers open from greenish-pink buds to deep pink and then terracotta. These will be absolutely teeming with bees the second they start to open, and are also a magnet for butterflies! The height of the plant and the flat, ledge-like flower head make it a great flower for our small people to observe the bees in action. The flower heads mature to attractive winter seed heads.
Full sun, low moisture required – very drought hardy, and perfect for xeriscaping and gravel gardens. Due to the water held in their leaves, sedums can also contribute to providing a good firebreak. See this article about the California bushfires.
