Sedum Autumn Joy – Garden Design Ideas

Sedum Autumn Joy

Sedum Autumn Joy Combination Ideas

One of our favorite sun perennial is Sedum Autumn Joy that I wrote about yesterday.  Today I want to give you a few garden design ideas with Autumn Joy Sedum.  Autumn Joy  has a stiff upright habit, with pink umbels in late summer and grows to about 2′ tall  A stunning combination is  a medium size ornamental grasses such as Pennisetum which provides an airy, free flowing style to the rigid stems of Sedum.  (Featured lower right).  Another mid size grass I like using is Feather Reed Grass or Calamagrostis Karl Foerster.

Another combination is using Perovskia (or Russian Sage)  (Left).  The tall upright spikes of blue play well against the flat pink umbels in addition to adding more height in the garden. This is a very popular combination used by professional landscape designers.

Caryopteris (Blue Mist Shrub) (Upper right) is one of those overlooked shrubs that burst into color in late summer and fall with beautiful blue flowers.  Here again, the blue and pink pair very well in the landscape together.

All these plants mentioned are drought proof and sun loving and very easy to grow, especially for beginner gardeners.

These are just a few combination ideas to get you started with designed with Sedum Autumn Joy.
