Sedum 'Pure Joy' Description
This outstanding, innovative Proven Winners perennial has all the durability, reliability, and beauty of the classic 'Autumn Joy' sedum, but measures in at just a fraction of the size! Rock N' Grow 'Pure Joy' sedum stays less than a foot tall, naturally growing as a tidy, tight mound all season long. We've seen a lot of sedum in our time, but this is truly one of the best.
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 attracts 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.

More Info, How-To's, Videos and more
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.
