      I hesitated to mention the name in the post! It stays green for quite a long time before turning deep red in autumn so we still have some time to enjoy summer.

    ‘Autumn Joy’ was the first sedum I “discovered” when I began gardening. I wrote about it in my book and noted that it seems to be on everyone’s list as one of the “best perennials.” Inexplicably, in my current garden, I have had significant damage by some unidentified critters; everything I had read about the plant emphasized its immunity to such things. Another note: the past few years I have noted a large number of fireflies feasting on the nectar as it blooms. If ‘Autumn Joy’ draws the fireflies to my garden, I am delighted.

      That’s a shame something is messing with your sedum. I’ve read it is deer-proof and have also read deer like it. I like it in this early green stage.
