Sedum Autumn Joy
Sedum Autumn Joy is an interesting plant. While sedum as a general category of plant IS found natively in the US, apparently Sedum Autumn Joy is NOT based on one of those native plants. Therefore, technically, this is a non-native species. The University of Floria reports that it is a cross between telephium and spectabilis. Hylotelephium telephium is a European variety. In any case, many gardeners plant Sedum Autumn Joy in Massachusetts becauuse it's hardy and merrily re-grows year after year without any help at all. It blooms in the fall with showy, purple-red flowers. So it's quite natural that it escape and enjoy the world it has.
