My apologies to the sedum that I neglected to include in the late bloomers. This Frosty Morn sedum is still fresh and pink even after our -5 C frosts. Originally this plant had some white variegation on the leaves, but over the years it has reverted to all green. The flowers are still pretty and, although the plant is not as vigorous nor does it form as large clump as Autumn Joy, it is one very tough plant.
The reddish Autumn Joy flowers are fading, but they still add colour to the garden.
The sedums are a good source of pollen for many insects in the late summer and fall. They are super easy to propagate - just break off a piece of the stem and stick it in the ground. Next year, it will leaf out nicely and bloom.
