At first, we were wary about the gold-to-chartreuse leaved Sedum rupestre 'Angelina.' When we started our nursery, we had found that species Sedum rupestre is overly vigorous and has the ability to reproduce readily from seed and from broken bits of foliage. We learned to use it only on difficult sites where we are not concerned about it competing with other plants. Eventually, we gave 'Angelina' a try and were pleased. We found that it gives us the ability to lighten up difficult areas even in part shade. Its succulent, spikey leaves whorling up the short stems remind us of the way club mosses drape in the wild. We now find 'Angelina' to be especially eye-catching and easy in containers, tucked into pockets in rock walls, or spilling over the top of concrete walls. This has recently been reclassified from Genus Sedum to Genus Petrosedum.
