I do love the color on the blooms of Neon much more than the ones on my even older Autumn Joys. Neon has been in my garden for close to 20 years. Hard to remember exactly how long. Bees and small butterflies love Sedum. Neon is always covered in pollinators when it blooms.

Love the bright color on these flowers! The plant itself is quite compact for an upright stonecrop, but with the bright color it sure stands out in my garden. One of my favorites!

The color of this plant is amazing--a real pop of color in the garden during the later part of summer. It's very hardy and easy to propagate by cuttings. It is not fussy about soil conditions. Makes a great cut flower too. Dried flower heads add winter interest to the garden.

Hardy and fast-growing. Spreads well. Tolerant of soil conditions, it is a profuse bloomer with intense magenta-colored flowers. Makes a lovely display.
