Plant Information

18-24" tall x 12-18" wide. Matrona is always a head-turner in the garden. The stunning red/purple stems shine while supporting big puffs of mauve flowers.

About the Sedums: These perennial plants enjoy gritty, fast-draining soil, and must have full hot sun. Theyre really desert plants, so give them sharp drainage. (Sedums are often called Succulents, due to their thickened moisture-retentive leaves, and yes, the short ones include the famous Hen and Chicks from grandmothers garden.)

Once sedums are established, youve assured yourself of loads of perennial interest for the later months when most garden flowers are gone.

    Comments about American Meadows Sedum Matrona:

    Three or fours years ago I found this tiny plant growing in my garden; it must have tagged along with something else I purchased. I had no clue what it was, but I knew it was a succulent of some sort. It did not do well in full sun the past two years so I transplanted it to my part-shade garden and it has flourished this year! The leaves are large, thick, and strong, about 1.5" cross and 3" long. The stems are a beautiful burgundy red and about 8" tall. The flower heads are filled with buds, but have not yet begun to bloom. I'm so glad I decided to keep this previously unknown plant as it is really quite striking. Now that I have been able to identify my plant as Sedum Matrona, I will be purchasing additional plants for my part-shade garden. The hardest part about gardening is patience; sometimes plants don't take no matter what we do, and sometimes we are blessed with surprises like this one. Just enjoy the experience and don't be afraid to keep trying something new, or something old in a new place. You never know...............

    Q & A

    Plant With These:

    USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

    To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

    • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
    • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
