Anyone know anything about these what they look like or if this plant is sterile?
Autumn joy sedum seeds
I know the plant itself is very easy to grow from a cutting. But have never tried the seeds.
I'm bad. Plants are easier and faster than seeds ☺
I am pretty sure it is sterile or at least wouldn't give you a plant anything like the parent. I've had a bunch of plants that I leave standing through winter and have never had a seedling. They are really easy to get new plants from pieces of roots though. When I've divided mine little pieces of roots seperated from the main plants turned into new plants.
I agree with all the above - if you can get even a stem off of a mother plant you can likely get it to root. Mine have never self-seeded.
I have broken limbs by accident and just stuck them in the ground
They live. they are very tough. I have not seen any seeds coming up either.
So I guess I won't bother saving seed Will leave them for the Quail...........But want to take for cuttings.......They are pretty drought tolerant..I do want a shorter variety to grow as mine is older and falls over :(
Angel, if you grow it in a container, it will help control the height , Much like Bonsai the plant is controlled in growth by the size of the container, I think...
Angel- I have never done it, but have read that if you pinch the Sedum back the first week of June or just whack it off (up to two thirds) it will not get as tall but will still bloom, without flopping. This advice is from Ciscoe Morris a gardening guru in Seattle.Then you don't need a different plant.
sounds like a winner to me.....
