Autumn Joy..............

I'm so glad Fall is here!  Cooler temperatures, some rain off and on, not too many bugs out there ~~


just look at the Autumn Joy Sedum now!!!


So much bang for your buck!!!
This is a great plant.  It takes no care, is drought tolerant, is easy to propagate, and it comes back every year.  Who could ask for more?
