|Easily Propagate Sedum Perennials|
Showy sedum such as Autumn Joy, Autumn Fire Stonecrop, 'Postman's Pride', variegated foliage on "Frosty Morn", 'Brilliant', which has bright pink petals; and 'Stardust', which has silvery-pink flowers, can be used in containers, as ground cover, in rock gardens, borders and given as gifts!
I bought my first showy sedum at the garden center. Debating the purchase price which was it something like $10-25/each! I brought one home and then discovered just how easy it is to propagate. Now take cutting from neighbors, trading for other plants, and using sedums in a variety of guerrilla garden projects. Showy Sedums are succulents - so the same principles apply from my prior post on propagating succulents
In my cold climate garden, showy sedums are 18-24 inches tall, blooming in midsummer through autumn. They require little maintenance and are fairly pest resistant. The old foliage/stems make good winter interest. The showy sedums die to the ground in winter then sprout back from its tuberous roots in spring.
