Angelina makes a textural and vidid ground cover. Mats of bright chartreuse colored plantlet can fill a large space and carry hints of orange and red through the growing season. Starting in the early spring, small Christmas tree like plantlets green up and brighten in color as the grow and warm. Keeps consistent color throughout the year and in fall the plants darken to shades of green and red. This sedum is an excellent choice for small spaces in rock gardens or container gardens. In larger plantings it can find a place near the edge of a border or tucked in with low height plants.

Caring for your Perennial - Sedum
Sedum is easy to grow and beautiful, as a result it is one of the most popular garden plants. Sedums are extremely drought tolerant and can be grown in poor soil so long as there is good drainage. If grown in soil that is fertile, it will grow in a less attractive, more spread out form. Plants may be lanky. Sedum prefers full sun, but some varieties can tolerate some shade. It is very resistant to pests and disease and in the winter you'll find that birds are attracted to eat the seed heads. These heads should be removed in spring as the new growth starts to show. Think about dividing your sedum every 3 to 4 years to maintain good quality attractive plants. Spring is the best time to perform division. Sedum is usually not bothered by pests or disease.
