Sedum 'Matrona'Synonym(s): Hylotelephium 'Matrona' Common Name: 'Stonecrop', 'Ice plant'
AGM. A wonderful clump-forming perennial with fleshy leaves flushed bronze and purple stems with large heads of soft-pink flowers in late summer and early autumn. Aug-Oct. H60cm S45cm.
Best grown in moderately fertile, well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soil. A drought tolerant plant, this is one of our favourite sedums for general planting as it looks good from the moment it comes through the soil in spring and even after the flowers fade in late autumn, the stems give good winter structure. Cut back in early Spring.
