    '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.

    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!

    A very common sedum in landscaping.

    This variety is extremely robust. Leaves "glow" yellow with orange tips. Plants can be quickly propagated by cutting off the top and sticking the cutting back into the soil.

    This plant can grow in light shade, but the more sun the better.

    Does not tolerate being stepped on at ALL.

    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.
  • Posted by ssgardener (Silver Spring, MD - Zone 7a) on Mar 10, 2013 8:18 PM concerning plant:
    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.
  • Posted by sedumzz (Fairfax VA - Zone 7a) on Dec 8, 2021 2:34 PM concerning plant:
    This is one of the two most popular "sedums" used in landscaping (along with Hylotelephium Herbstreude).

    It "glows" a bright mango-yellow when stressed.
  • Posted by valleylynn (Oregon City, OR - Zone 8b) on Mar 4, 2010 4:45 AM concerning plant:
    Angelina is a very hardy plant that takes cold, hot or wet conditions as long as it has good drainage.
  • Posted by SongofJoy (Clarksville, TN - Zone 6b) on Nov 21, 2011 9:55 AM concerning plant:
    A vigorous, mat-forming sedum that holds its color through the heat of summer.
