****Sedum Blue Spruce****SHOWN ABOVE
The steel blue foliage and yellow flowers on this fast growing ground cover make it the perfect choice for those poor-soil conditions.

****Autumn Joy Sedum ****
This is a wonderful plant for late summer blooms that extend into autumn. During a time when the garden is baking under the heat of August, this Sedum comes alive. The common name of Stone Crop indicates its origins. The genus is Sedum and it is also known as Herbstfreude. Autumn Joy Sedum will return year after year as a hardy perennial when grown in zones 3-9. It is not a favorite of deer and has the added benefit of attracting butterflies. The blooms start in August as pink and slowly darken to a beautiful crimson over the early to mid fall until first frost.
Find the correct location. Autumn joy Sedum needs Full Sun which means at least 6 full hours of direct sunlight but will thrive in more than 6 hours per day. Autumn Joy Sedum can survive in Part Sun or Partial Shade, these 2 terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3 - 6 hours of sun each day, preferably in the morning and early afternoon.
Autumn Joy Sedum needs well drained soil and does not like wet roots. It is very drought tolerant. Natural landscape when found in the wild is rocky soil that drains quickly. The first year Autumn Joy Sedum will need additional watering as it gets established, after the first year this sedum will withstand drought and be a very hardy plant.
The growth pattern for Autumn Joy Sedum is about 2 to 3 feet high and 2 feet wide. When planting, plants should be placed between 18 inches and 24 inches apart from each other.
Autumn Joy Sedum does not need pruning but the stalks of this perennial can be cut back after flowering. Use caution if cutting back in the spring. If not pruned very early it may delay flowering.
If the Autumn Joy Sedum begins to appear leggy, evaluate the amount of sun it receives, has a shrub or tree taken away sun that it used to receive? Or is it time to divide the clump and begin to grow in other parts of the yard or give away to neighbors. After evaluating and making modifications for too little sun and cramped roots, the Autumn Joy Sedum should return to its full glory.

****Gold Moss Sedum****
All you have to do is bury just a bit of the end...it roots where it touches the soil. How easy is this. You may get pieces that are longer and some may even be rooted!
