There's more to know about sedums than just 'Autumn Joy.' I'm guessing most of us have or have had a few clumps of the old standby and are continually amazed at how rugged it is. I had one that I dug out of a flower bed when I was about 10 years old, I swear that thing was still living, in a clump, on top of the ground when I went to college. As long as they are in a mostly sunny location with good drainage they will be with you always.

Lucikly some new colors and forms are reaching the market. 'Lemonade' forms compact mounds, but features citron yellow flowers rather than the more familiar pink/burgundy tones. 'Night Embers' is an alluring black/purple throughout most of summer and then develops dusty mauve flowers just as many other plants are dying down for the season. One of my favorites for 2019. 'Neon' has golden green foliage with broad rosy-magenta flower heads followed by golden fall color. Sedums are great for adding structure to the garden, where they visually act as shrubs, they are long lasting cut flowers, and they are one of the best choices for tough dry places, although they're happy in any well drained soil.
