Sedum Angelina description
Glowing bronzy yellow foliage throughout the whole year – looking really spectacular in colder weather.
Do not put anywhere near smaller plants – this plant is quite a thug!
Yellow flowers on tall stems in the summer.
A pollinator friendly plant including bees.
This is a butterfly friendly plant.
Can tolerate a coastal aspect with a certain amount of salt laden air.
How easy is it to grow:
Good for a large space in the front of a border, on a bank, hanging over a wall or on rough ground and it thrives (often too much!) in most soils, including heavy or clay ones, provided there are no Vine Weevil in your garden (see ‘Care and maintenance’ below).
Common name: Angelina Stonecrop.
The best position in the garden:
Is it useful as a ground cover plant?
Yes, in time it will fill a large space at the front of a flower border.
What type of soil:
Any reasonable soil, also tolerates chalky soil and tolerates clay soil.
How much moisture:
Normal or dryish stony.
Hardiness and, or, lifespan:
Care and maintenance:
When newly planted always keep it watered until the roots have grown down and it is able to find its own moisture.
You may have to be quite ruthless in keeping this within bounds, but be aware that every bit of plant debris dropped will root and grow into a new plant!
It is susceptible to Vine Weevil which lay their eggs by the plant and these develop into white, banana shaped grubs that chomp the roots. Biological control is pretty good at controlling it.
Size of plant:
Height 20 cm.
Planting density – to calculate how many plants are required in a planting scheme:
Allow 1 plant per square metre.
Buy alpines, herbs, wildflowers, perennials and ornamental grasses.
