Sedum telephium 'Matrona'
An upright evergreen perennial plant with succulent, waxy leaves. Bears clusters of small showy star-shaped crimson-pink flowers in late Summer to Autumn. Flower stalks are a magenta colour.
Once established, this is a low maintenance, tough plant which grows well in all soil types Whilst it prefers being in full sun, it is tolerant of being positioned in partial shade. Drought tolerant once established. Prune after flowering to maintain natural shape and maintain stronger stalks, however, take care not to prune too much as this can delay flowering.
Use in gardens that require little or no water. Best in mixed planting because it dies down over winter and regrows in spring. Great planted in hot sunny areas where the light pink mass of flowers can be enjoyed.
