'Angelina' always attracts attention in the garden. No matter what time of year it is, the colors always stand out. It's an easy plant to root and spreads nicely, but it's also easy to remove because of its shallow root system. Looks nice planted under dark-leaved companion plants.

Angelina is a very hardy plant that takes cold, hot or wet conditions as long as it has good drainage.

A vigorous, mat-forming sedum that holds its color through the heat of summer.

Sedum 'Angelina' has rust tones on the tips this time of year. It looks good when a frost is on it. It is equally happy under a Maple Tree or in a container in full sun.

Beautiful orange color in winter, bright yellow in summer, very pretty yellow flowers in spring, but the flower stalks need to be cut down or they look unsightly after they turn brown. Does great in hot sun as well as part shade. Roots very easily.

Does not tolerate being stepped on at ALL.

This plant is a prolific grower in my zone 6 garden, as it was when I grew it in zone 5. I purchased a very small pot back in 2006. It has multiplied a million times over, but it does not reseed, at least for me. I have taken it with me through two moves. When a patch of it becomes too large, I pull it up and simply drop it in another area where I want it to take hold. NO digging or soil loosening required, or even watering! It turns the most lovely shade of reddish orange in the winter. I did have trouble with deer decimating it the winter of 2012-2013, but it grew back just fine in the spring and the deer have not bothered it since. No matter if they do. I have plenty!
