Showy Stonecrop

Showy Stonecrop
Sedum 'Matrona'
Synonyms: Hylotelephium

This flower has undergone some name changes over the years and I am not really sure what to officially call it. It is a strange plant that seems to thrive on neglect and hard conditions. This plant is growing in one of the hottest driest area of the estate and is doing well. It is great to have something seem to actually want to grow there. My feeling it is easy to love this plant to death. If it likes the conditions then there isn’t much of a need for gardener invention with this fall-blooming perennial.

It really is a strange plant! It really is hard to believe that this bunch of flowers is able to survive dry places, they’re like cactuses I guess, but you’ve mentioned that they’re perennial. Nevertheless, they really are very beautiful flowers, starry ones too!
