Stonecrop 'Autumn Fire' is a sizeable sedum, growing to a good 2.5 feet in height, with a spread of 18-24". It emerges in the early spring as tiny green rosettes and begins to form flower heads by midsummer. By late summer, the first pale pink bloom begins to show. Flowering continues into the fall, with the bloom color intensifying to a deep pink. The pollinators love Sedum 'Autumn Fire.' It is usually covered in bees and skippers while blooming.

Blooms for me were a soft pink color and for this reason I parted with it. Bloomed the first week of Oct, I consider light pink to be a spring color. I have grown Autumn Joy and it has a richer color, more appropriate for a fall color palette.
