The Q&A Archives: Sedum, round balls of Autumn Joy!!

Question: Hello -- looking at the pictures for Autumn Joy stonecrop, you guys have one shot where they are made into perfectly rounded balls! They are so cute and I want to do that with mine ... (I have Brilliant ones, just purchased, ready to go into the ground) and I'm writing to ask how that's done?

Answer: That is the plant's natural shape and habit early in the summer. As the season progresses the stems elongate. So you don't have to do anything to have it look like that! This is a very low maintenance plant once established; you only need to trim it back annually each fall to remove the frosted stems. Enjoy!
