Caring for Sedum 'Autumn Fire' - Autumn Stonecop
Sedum is easy to grow and beautiful, as a result it is one of the most popular garden plants. Sedums are extremely drought tolerant and can be grown in poor soil so long as there is good drainage. If grown in soil that is fertile, it will grow in a less attractive more spread out form. Sedum prefers full sun, but some varieties can tolerate some shade. It is very resistant to pests and disease and in the winter you'll find that birds are attracted to eat the seed heads. These heads should be removed in spring as the new growth starts to show.
