Sedum telephium in September

(Revised 12 Feb 2014)
Sedums extend the lives of perennial beds from late summer into fall. The groundcover varieties provide interesting foliage texture and colour variations at the front of the walks or borders. One annoying problem to address for the tall varieties is, with a few exceptions, their structures appear to flop towards the end of summer. The practice of cutting back the stems in May and let them re-establish with shorter and more stable structures is a viable solution but it is an annoying chore.
With so much enerygy wasted in fighting the battle with voles, I have neglected my sedums and many tall varieties are gradually disappearing from my garden. They lose their identities easily since many varieties do not have sufficient distinct characteristics, and they self-sow easily.
