This 'wow' plant produces a glowing golden mat of narrow, needle-like foliage with yellow summer blooms. Easy to maintain, it likes hot, dry conditions! 'Angelina' Sedum creates charming clusters of star-shaped flowers in summer and thrives among rocks and gritty soil. It is also known as Sedum reflexum.
The Sedums are known in folklore to as the “live-forever plants”; many believe keeping one in your room will ward off life threatening illnesses.
'Angelina's' cousin, 'Lemon Ball' Sedum, tolerates the hot, hot heat of summer even better that 'Angelina', so keep that in mind while garden planning. Both are fun additions to your garden or patio planters.
