The tallest of the tall-type sedums that grow in my garden and my personal favorite sedum. I find it frustrating that the local garden centers do not ever carry Matrona, instead going with rows of the much more common Autumn Joy. Matrona is taller and has larger leaves than Autumn Joy. In my opinion, the plant is much prettier while the flowers are a slightly different color. Attracts bees and other pollinating insects in droves, just as all the upright sedums do.

This is one of my favorite sedums for my zone. Tall, large, showy, a vigorous grower. Reliable and easy to grow here.
