I LOVE SEDUM ‘MATRONA’ in all its parts: raspberry-stained stems, ivory-into-mauve flowers, and of course its blue foliage, which in the light of a rainy day glows like turquoise. Even the seedlings–yes, this beauty of a tall Sedum self-sows here–are charming, and so easy to move around. In case you don’t know it, meet Sedum ‘Matrona’ (blooming now here, above).
Others among my favorite perennials you might like: They’re all here (along with some good-looking annuals, admittedly). Enjoy.
