I have a beautiful Autumn Joy Sedum and also 3 sickly looking yellowish green ones. Are they a different variety (if yes, they have to go) ? or do they need help to look healthy ?

Can you take some pictures? It always helps if people can see your plant.

Also, are they all in the same place or in different parts of your yard? Did you just buy them from a nursery or have you had them a while?

They are both the same family but just different types, Autumn Joy and Autumn Glory are very similar but the green one you mention is not as hardy and strong growing as the other two I mention.
It would be best IF you could send in a picture as there are many different types that could be described as yellow and they range from small low growing plants to the taller ones that grow as tall as your Autumn Joy, I would not throw out the green yellow one just yet as it may transpire that it is just needing different conditions to the others, UNLESS you just don't like it.
By the way these plants are so easy to take cuttings from and give you more plants if required, you just scrape away earth around the root areas and there will be small offshoots with roots attached, do this in early spring when new growth appears and select new plantlet's large enough to pot up and care for till large enough to set out and grow on as a plant for the borders.
Best of luck. WeeNel.

Yes, some naturally have different colored leaves. Too much water would likely make any Sedum ill though, if that's a consideration.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
