Sedum rupestre 'Angelina' is the perfect green roof plant for a low maintenance extensive green roof with year round interest. Like the ideal recession employee, this sedum thrives under stressful conditions and in poor dry soils. This sedum shines its brightest during the winter with bright and cheery displays of gold and red tipped foliage. Great for ground cover accents, this sedum provides sprawling coverage and creates a dramatic cascading effect in potted arrangements. This sedum grows to a height of 5 inches with an almost doubled spread of 8 inches. Sedum rupestre 'Angelina' can be cultivated from cuttings and does well with full sun in zones 6a to 9b.
