Sedum Pure Joy Description
One of the best new Sedums yet! Structured and refined, this low growing Sedum adds a finishing touch to the garden. Pure Joy stays less than a foot tall, staying tailored and structured (not falling open like other Sedums). So perfect a perennial, it truly provides over 3+ seasons of interest.
In late summer hundreds of pink flowers appear on short, stocky cut-out detailed stems. Blooms start a soft pink and gradually darken as the season wanes providing interest for the fall garden.
With almost rubber-like foliage, Pure Joy remains durable even under extreme heat and humidity, thriving in poor soil and drought. This dependable perennial is long lived attracting butterflies, bees, and birds.
Ideal as an edging in front of the border or line it along a sidewalk. It's perfect in an area that the hoses don't reach as it needs little water and it takes up little space.

Ideas and How-to's
Recommended for You:
Soil: Average, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils. Thrives in sandy to gravelly soils of moderate to low fertility. Needs sharp soil drainage to perform well. Prefers moist soils with good drainage.
Light: Does best in full sun, but appreciates some protection from harsh sun and heat exposure in very hot summer regions.
Water: Medium to dry -- Considered drought-tolerant once established. Over watering will impair growth.
Spacing: 1 - 2 ft.
Fertilizing: On average soil, seldom needs fertilizer. A handful of all-purpose granular fertilizer sprinkled on the soil each spring is generally all that is needed for poorer soils. If growing in rich soil, it should only be fertilized every other year. Dry granular fertilizers must be watered into the soil.
Winterizing: Does not need mulch in the winter. Remove the debris (such as the remains of showy sedums) from under and around your plants in the late fall and continue to remove any debris as it accumulates. Small animals and bugs may take home in accumulated debris during cold weather.
Maintenance & Pruning: Can cut back in Autumn, after flowering. Divide in spring.
