I've only had the plant a short time but the thing that stands out about this cultivar is the colouring of the leaves which on the top half of the plant are pink and therefore shows up from a distance.
The important thing its its not too dark a colouring like matrone, joyce henderson, xenon, strawberry's and cream, purple emperor, etc which are all dark red/black leaf colour and the plants arent really that visible until up close.
Also as its only the top half of the plant thats pink and the bottom is a sea green, there is a nice two-tone effect to the foliage .
Flowers have pink cololuring from mid-july.
I have yet to try this plant in a hotspot to see if it keeps the light pink colouring and doesnt go dark.

Clearer, brighter pink flower color than most of the tall autumn sedums---this is my favorite because of the excellent color. Begins to flower in August for me.

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

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