Sedum ‘Matrona’
at Digging Dog

Sedum  Matrona

August–October.

Sedum

Stonecrop

Tough yet delightful, beloved by butterflies and bees, these succulent perennials flourish even in lean and mean soils. The blooms assert a decidedly horizontal element to the garden as long lasting, flat umbels of starry flowers emerge from buds in broccolilike clusters. Supported by stout, sturdy stems, the blooms mature through a range of colors, extending the visual delight well into winter.

Asking only for good drainage along with an occasional sip of water, Sedums are durable, reliable and almost maintenance-free.

A new German cultivar, ‘Matrona’s smoky pink flowers age to russet as winter approaches. Her red-hued, glistening stems are upright and lined with luscious blue-green foliage, each thick leaf displaying a vermilion midrib and margin. Plant our softly colored “matron” with Aster ‘Lady in Black’, Euphorbia ‘Jade Dragon’ and Pennisetum ‘Tall Tails’ for an arresting union.

Size: 18"–2' 0" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Customer Comment:

“Surfing the web for a special plant, I chanced on Digging Dog Nursery. I thought that any nursery that could create an Egyptian Gothic out of Anubis must have some pretty cool things going for it. I was right, and my first order was a pleasure. Well packed, healthy plants and extremely appealing people on the other side of the screen.”
