Grow the Best-Looking Fall Garden Ever
Hardy sedums are a reliable bloomer found in many Midwest gardens. Plant size, flower color and bloom time vary; popular types for early fall include 'Autumn Joy' (left), 'Frosty Morn', 'Purple Emperor' and 'Meteor.' 'Autumn Joy', especially, is a classic--it grows about 2 feet tall, with flowers that open as dusty pink, then turn rust as they age.
