A fabulous display of autumn colours - from a succulent!
With a long drawn out autumn this year - we are still awaiting the first real signs of winter - there has been plently of time to appreciate the colours of autumn leaves.
This is normally something you associate with trees and shrubs, especially Acers - with their display of fiery reds, oranges and yellows.
However a few days back I saw this pot of Sedum sieboldii variegata putting on the most vivid display of autumnal colour as it started the process of dying back to its rootstock. Sedum sieboldii is well worth growing in a pot or a very well drained sheltered spot. It has nicely marked leaves - although the variegata form will tend to revert very rapidly to the straight form unless you ruthlessly prune out any reversion - and it has delicate soft pink heads of flower.
