Sedum - Waterwise Autumn Flowers!

Sedum is a large genus of succulent plants native to many places in the world.  Here in Utah, there are several varieties found in the wild - mostly small ground covers.  At local nurseries, there are many varieties of ground cover Sedums available as well as taller, fall-blooming perennial Sedums.  These are perfect plants for a xeriscaped garden as they only need extra water in July and August.  The tall Sedums have nice green or gray foliage all summer and then put on a show in September and October with their bright pink or red flowers.  They attract butterflies!
