A classic pink and gray combo
Whether you are a sedum-loving plant collector or new to the sedum scene, Sedum ‘Matrona’ is a must-have in your garden. Originating in the mountains in Germany, you know these are hardy garden plants are sure to put on a great display your temperate American garden.
‘Matrona’ has thick upright purple stems, but gray-green leaves with rosy-pink edges. The foliage would be striking on its own, but just wait until it blooms! The mauve pink flowers attract butterflies by the droves and then turn a deep chocolate brown in winter, providing winter interest and food for the birds.
The tall, upright plants grow into substantially sized clumps of foliage that can even take the place of shrubs in your landscape. They look great with other sedums, of course, but the thick stems and high domes of florets are also perfect foils for strappy grasses and low-growing groundcovers.
Sedum ‘Matrona’ is a mother of all sedums and will certainly please you for many years to come. Don’t wait and order yours from Nature Hills today.
