Stonecrop Interesting Notes

From Ewald Hugin of Germany comes this 1991 introduction...a hybrid seedling (S. 'Atropurpureum' x S. 'Autumn Joy') that appeared in his garden. In 1998, it was awarded the prestigious Outstanding Perennial Award from the International Hardy Plant Union. In German, "matrone" means a "lady of well-rounded form"...alluding to the robust nature of the sedum. - Plant Delights Nursery

Attractive gray-green leaves edged in rose-pink complement delightful flowers that attract butterflies. Allow seed heads to remain standing for winter interest. Excellent in the garden or landscape planting, and beautiful with rudbeckia and coneflowers. - Darwin Perennials
