What Houzz contributors are saying:

Showy Stonecrop (Sedum 'Autumn Joy') A must for the fall garden. Pair it with a contrasting plant like fountain grass (Pennisetum alopecuroides) for a knockout combination. The cut flowers are great for arrangements, too — put them in a vase without water and let them dry for a Thanksgiving display.USDA zones: 3 to 8Water requirement: AverageLight requirement: Full sunMature size: 18 inches tallPlanting tips: Stonecrops are clump forming and benefit from regular divisions to keep within bounds. Dig and divide in spring when foliage first appears.

Don't tidy up too much. In our rush to cut everything back, we can lose sight of the important role plants play in the ecosystem. I leave sedum 'Autumn Joy' and ornamental grasses up all winter for wildlife.
