Sedum 'Autumn Fire'


(syn. Hylotelephium 'Herbstfreude' Group)

Bold clusters of closely packed, rosy pink flowers appear in late summer, age to a salmon bronze, and finish with a deep coppery-red in fall. An easy-to-grow plant that not only tolerates drought, but seems to thrive in it. The sturdy stems of 'Autumn Fire' keep it beautifully intact throughout its bloom period for an outstanding show!

stonecrop Interesting Notes

An improvement on a classic upright sedum with large flat flower heads, this selection holds up much longer into fall than 'Autumn Joy'. Plants are easy in almost all soils and grow in full sun to part shade. Deciduous, glaucous, waxy blue-green stems and leaves with alternate leaves on succulent stems. Plants go from light rose to bright red to deep bronze red in color as fall turns into winter. 18-24 inch tall and 20-30 inches wide. Very showy in late fall – leave the stems on over winter and they look great in the snow, keeping a rusty red color. Butterflies and bumblebees love this plant. Plants are useful in the border, rock garden, or as a filler in that odd spot. Mix in with 'Stella De Ora' daylilies and garden phlox. Plants are long lived and can grow into very large clumps. -

Sedum 'Autumn Fire' Growing and Maintenance Tips

Prefers average to dry, well-drained soil in full sun. Intolerant of wet soils. Propagate by seed and cuttings, although division seems to be the easiest. Excellent in perennial borders, rock gardens, or in mass plantings.
