& Comments:

Sedum spectabile
Autumn Joy is a very good variety for the Lubbock area. The succulent foliage forms a rounded mound after overwintering in a rosette form. Sedum are suitable for edging, specimen plants and containers. Smaller varieties are good choices for rock gardens and wall. Sedum make great cut flowers and are popular with butterflies.
