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 darken to russet as winter approaches. Her red-hued, glistening stems are upright and clad with luscious blue-green foliage, each fleshy leaf displaying a vermilion midrib and margin. Plant our softly colored “matron” with Scutellaria ‘Smoky Hills’ and Andropogon ‘Black Mountain’ for an arresting union.
Size: 18" – 2' 0" high x 18" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
