Wanted; 1 old Gnome (no [unseemly] jokes please :)

Dianne from Hamilton East

Has anyone got an old Gnome from their or perhaps Grandads garden that they.....dont like, dont want, that they would like to get rid of
Chips, etc are fine.
Obviously willing to pay. This is to be a Christmas present for someone who is just slightly obsessed with them!
Cheers

Autumn Joy is a popular upright variety of stonecrop.Sedums are a fantastic plant that are extremely tolerant of sandy or gravelly soil and dry conditions.

The leaves are fleshy and succulent like and the first flowers appear in autumn with flat heads of flowers that gradually open to produce pinkish flowers that gradually turn to bronze then rust red. Bees and Bumblebees love the flowers of this plant. Can also be used as cut flowers.

The flower can be left on the plant to provide winter interest and birds will feed on the dried flower heads.

This plant quickly establishes an attractive clump of grey foliage, in spring it bursts forth with tall stems with glowing magenta flowers that float above the foliage. It has a long season of interest flowering from spring through until late summer. It is easy to grow and trouble free, in short, it is the perfect plant!

It is grown as much for its foliage as its flowers and the foliage provides interest in the winter garden whilst not flowering. It is an excellent choice for dry gardens as does like to have good drainage and it is of course right at home in the cottage garden as it will self sow and pop up around your garden as it self-sows. The fact that it likes a dry spot means it is an excellent choice of plant in our climate as things become a lot drier.

Plant is in 1.9 litre pot.

Plant grows from division, so flowers are already formed as you may see from a photo.
