What Is This Plant? (Red Sedum)

Can anyone give me a name for this plant that was given to me? The leaves are smooth and the flowers were light purple before they turned this deep red.

Please be aware that the bumblebees absolutely LOVE this plant. I pulled it out because there were too many around children.

This is a perrennial sedum. It will become fuller over the years and is trouble free and beautiful.

As the one poster said, it is a red sedum not necessarily "Autumn Joy". That is just one name among many for Sedum.

I love this plant - transplanting is a snap! Trim back the tops to get a fuller plant and take that part and poke a hole and stick in the ground. And yes, watch for the bees! If this is planted in a shady area the flower is more lavender.

It's a sedum or as my Mom calls them "Forevers". You might know it as that.

It is a cold tolerant sedum. One of the many plants with the common name of roseroot. they provide color late in the fall.

They also naturalize very well. You can take a small piece of the bulbous reddish roots/tubers and easily grow many more plants. Even taking large chunks of the roots have not hurt my plants.

I've never had a problem with insects or bees/wasps with them.
