2006 09:27 monarch 05

Any idea what this flower is? A friend who is a professional gardener gave me a whole bunch of these plants she had removed from a clients garden.... they sat all summer without any sign of flowering and I was about to give up on them but they are "late bloomers" and this monarch spent a good hour sipping on this one, even fending off bees to do it. I suspect the monarch is fueling itself for the trip south.

flowrbx identified the flower as a fall blooming Sedum called Autum Joy
