Sedum x 'Matrona' (Crassulaceae)
'Matrona' has many handsome features, including bronzy-green foliage, strong, shiny, reddish-purple upright stems, and large, pale-pink flower heads in late summer. This German introduction thrives in sunny gardens in average-to-dry soils and tops out 4-6" taller than Sedum 'Autumn Joy'. 'Matrona's' stout and sturdy form is supposed to remind us of an old grandmother in a pink bandana! Thanks to Rick Darke for encouraging us to offer this Sedum introduction.
