Sedum ‘Herbstfreude’ (also known as ‘Autumn Joy’) is a remarkable herbaceous perennial that graces gardens with its unique features. Let me share some details about this delightful plant:

  • Vigorous and Hardy: This sedum is one of the best border choices. It’s vigorous, hardy, and carefree, making it a favorite among gardeners.
  • Season of Interest: From early summer until well into winter, Sedum ‘Herbstfreude’ offers more than 6 months of interest.
  • Foliage: The plant forms a 2-foot-tall and wide (60 cm) clump of thick, fleshy, blue-green foliage.
  • Flower Buds: Atop the foliage, densely clustered buds resembling broccoli gradually open to reveal tiny, star-like soft raspberry pink flowers in mid to late summer.
  • Color Transformation: As fall arrives, these flowers softly change to rich rose and then coppery-rust.
  • Winter Interest: Even after flowering, the foliage and dead inflorescences remain attractive through winter.
  • Versatility: Sedum ‘Herbstfreude’ provides color and contrast to beds, borders, or rock gardens when most other plants have stopped blooming.
  • Growing Conditions: It thrives in full sun and prefers average, well-drained soils. It tolerates very light shade and poor soils.
  • Wildlife Attraction: The flowers are attractive to bees, hummingbirds, and butterflies.
  • Drought and Heat Tolerance: Once established, it is both drought-tolerant and heat-tolerant.
  • Low Maintenance: This sedum forgives neglect and is disease-resistant.
  • Pairings: It looks particularly attractive when planted with Asters, Solidago (ornamental golden rods), Boltonias, and ornamental grasses.
  • Late-Season Beauty: Standing for months, its faded flowers and seed heads provide a colorful display even in late fall and winter.

Salvia nemorosa ‘Herbstfreude’ is a standout perennial that adds vibrant beauty to any landscape.
