Three years ago, Sydney Eddison decided to try something new in her Newtown, Connecticut garden: a sedum hedge. She planted a long row of ‘Autumn Joy’ sedum (Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’, Zones 3-9) against a backdrop of evergreens in a far corner of her garden and stood back to see what happened. Now it’s a stunning feature in her garden. Because she wanted it to be as tall as possible, she didn’t trim the plants back in spring, as she normally does for her sedums. Consequently, this hedge does require staking, but the effect is worth the effort!
