Sedum’s come in all shapes and sizes and are cherished for their groups of tiny star-shaped flowers that are clustered together to form the look of a larger flower-head. One of the most easiest to grow flowers, needing no attention whatsoever once it has established itself in the border, is the Sedum Ice Plant. It is erect and splendid and at its best in the Autumn. The flowers early in Autumn are like pearl pink nail polish in colour, deepening to Christmas paper pink, an almost red towards early October. If allowed to remain on the plant it naturally dries out and then may be used for flower arrangements. Many people choose to spray the flower heads gold to mix in with table arrangements or to added to natural door ornaments which are often displayed on front doors as a celebration to mark the Christmas period.
