Clearer, brighter pink flower color than most of the tall autumn sedums. Begins to flower in August for me.

One of the floppier tall sedums, in my experience. Stems splay outward like a fountain.

A nice Sedum, not necessarily one of my favorites, but good, none the less. Blooms September-October in my garden.
