Sedum repestre (synonymous with S. reflexum) is a low-growing, mat-forming, evergreen stonecrop that grows to only 4” tall but quickly spreads to 24” wide on stems clad with spiky gray-green leaves. ‘Angelina’ is a yellow leaved cultivar featuring spiky yellow leaves (to 3/4” long) that often sport ginger brown tips. The leaves of this cultivar are the main ornamental interest. In cold winter climates, the leaves usually turn reddish-orange in autumn. Star-shaped yellow flowers (1/2” wide) appear in terminal cymes in summer (June – August), but are not overly showy because of the lack of contrast with the yellow leaves. Sedums are commonly called stonecrops in reference to the fact that many of the sedum species plants are typically found in the wild growing on rocky or stony ledges. Rupestre means “rock loving” in reference to the mountainous native habit of plants of this species.
