'Autumn Joy'

As I have been clearing and weeding my garden since we bought it, I have been delighted to find perennial plants popping up. I am guessing they have laid dormant covered by weeds and drowned of sun and since there is so much more sun in our garden and they can breathe again the are surfacing once again. One such plant is the 'Autumn Joy' a succulent with fleshy, oblong green leaves, topped with greenish-pink buds which quickly turn to deep pink starry flower-heads in summer, maturing to pinkish-bronze then coppery-red in autumn. A valuable late source of nectar for butterflies and bees, the dried flowerheads provide structure and colour in the winter garden.

What you need to know...
Propagate by division in spring. Propagate by softwood cuttings of non-flowering shoots in early summer
