Product Details

Hylotelephium telephium 'Matrona' (formerly classified as Sedum telephium 'Matrona') has flowers clustered in broad heads, the better to attract pollinators, that are a blend of cream, rose, and vivid pink that reads as soft pink from a distance. But what really sets this plant apart is its lovely blue-green foliage, which is borne on complementary stems of wine red. This outstanding perennial makes a stunning late-summer and early-fall trio with Echinacea and Phlox.

The genus Hylotelephium, previously classified under Sedum, consists of over 30 species of herbaceous perennials known for their succulent-like foliage and clusters of star-shaped flowers. These plants are native to regions in Asia, Europe, and North America, and they are commonly referred to as stonecrop due to their frequent appearance on rocky terrains. Hylotelephium species are popular in gardens for their drought tolerance, low maintenance, and ability to attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies. They are typically used in rock gardens, borders, and as ground cover, thriving in well-drained soils and full sun​.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery.

Sedum Telephium Matrona

I was glad when I got this sedum into the ground. I just love sedums and planted it in my new rock garden. It immediately "took off" and was very showy by summer's end though it didn't get huge as it is the first year. I left it for winter interest. Deer do not bother it. Butterflies loved it. Will enjoy it even more this season as they grow steadily without overgrowing their area.

not hardy

I chose this plant because sedum do well in our yard and I wanted to try some variety. I planted three of these in early May and went on vacation in a dry June. Had yard watered regularly; all other plants survived. Two died and one is near death.

Sedums and Hylotelephiums are succulent plants known for their drought tolerance and ease of care, often found in rock gardens and borders. Commonly called stonecrops, both typically have thick, fleshy leaves and produce clusters of small, star-shaped flowers; they thrive in well-drained soils and full sun​. Hylotelephiums, previously classified under Sedum, include species like 'Autumn Joy'. Both genera are excellent for attracting pollinators, with their flowers providing a valuable nectar source for bees and butterflies.

Upright forms: Plant in full sun (or partial shade in the South) in average, well-drained soil. The dried flower heads of many varieties remain attractive in winter, whether left standing in the garden or brought indoors. Mature plants may require staking. Plants will be more compact if the tips of new spring growth are pinched back by ⅓ when the stems are 4–6″ tall.

Growing Sedum and Hylotelephium

Low-growing forms: These colorful, vigorous, but well-behaved ground covers are perfect for decorating openings between stones in a path or wall, and invaluable for rock gardens and troughs. They have the same growing needs as the upright forms, thriving with little care and moisture.

Sedum Tile® is a blend of Sedums grown on a coconut fiber mat for gardens, rooftops, and containers. They are easy to install—simply place the tiles 12" apart from each other over 2–3" of damp soil, firm down, and water thoroughly. For growing in containers, simply cut the coconut fiber to fit your container and plant the tiles over 2–3" of damp soil, firm down, and water thoroughly.
