Botanical / Common Name
African Feather Grass
Pennisetum macruorum
(spring planting) sun, pink inflorescence in Aug-Sept, strong grower, 3-4.5 ft, brownish tint, good for mass planting and erosion control, Zone 6-9

Autumn Fire Sedum
Sedum ‘Autmn Fire’

An improvement on a classic up right sedum with large flat flower heads, this selection holds up much longer into fall than 'Autumn Joy.' Plants are easy in almost all soils, grow in full sun to part shade. Deciduous glaucous waxy blue green stems and leaves with alternate leaves on succulent stems. Bold clusters of closely packed, rosy pink flowers appear in late summer, age to a salmon bronze and finish with a deep coppery red in fall. An easy-to-grow plant that not only tolerates drought, but seems to thrive in it. The sturdy stems of Autumn Fire keep it beautifully in tact throughout its bloom period. Very showy in the late fall- leave the stems on over winter and they look great in the snow- keeping a rusty red color. Long lived and can grow into very large clumps that become drought tolerant when established.  Rabbit resistant.
