Planting Instructions
Plant in spring, spacing plants 6 inches to 2 feet apart, depending on the variety. Prepare the garden bed by using a garden fork or tiller to loosen the soil to a depth of 12 to 15 inches, then mix in a 2- to 4-inch layer of compost. Dig a hole twice the diameter of the pot the plant is in. Carefully remove the plant from its container and place it in the hole so the top of the root ball is level with the soil surface. Carefully fill in around the root ball and firm the soil gently. Water thoroughly.

Care
Apply a thin layer of compost each spring, followed by a 2-inch layer of mulch to retain moisture and control weeds. Water plants during the summer if rainfall is less than 1 inch per week. After the first killing frost, cut stems back to an inch or two above soil line. Divide plants every 3 to 4 years as new growth begins in the spring, lifting plants and dividing them into clumps.

Companion Plants
Fountaingrass – Fountaingrass softens the stolid heads of Autumn Joy sedum with its graceful arching bottlebrush flowers in sunny places.
Russian sage – In late summer and early fall, Russian sage has airy spires of silver foliage and lavender blue flowers that play off well against tall live-forever hybrids such as ‘Matrona’.
Black-eyed Susan – The ubiquitous combination of Goldsturm black-eyed Susan with Autumn Joy sedum has become a classic. They bloom at the same time and enjoy similar conditions.
Artemisia – In full sun, the finely cut silver foliage of Silver Mound artemisia plays off well against bright green Kamschatka sedum
