In Spring when plant reaches around 8 inches tall, trim it back by half. This will produce more but smaller flowers. The advantage of this is the plant is fuller and will flop open less.
And as others have said, root the cuttings for more plants.
I usually give the rooted cuttings away.

Brilliant is one of the taller growing sedums, mature height is 15” - 18” with a spread of approximately 18”. Extremely low maintenance plant, which is dormant in winter, but nice fleshy green leaves arranged in whorled patterns begin in February, if planted in full sun. Blooms deep pink, starting in July and will continue to bloom until a hard freeze, in zone 7.
Great plant. Can even grow (but not thrive) in fairly deep shade, clay soil, and little water. Probably likes sun best. Easy to increase from cuttings.
