Sedum spectabile 'Autumn Fire'
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 improvement on a classic upright sedum with large flat flower heads, this selection holds up much longer into fall than Sedum 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.
