Angelina 'Stonecrop' Plant
About Plant- Angelina stonecrop (Sedum rupestre 'Angelina') is evergreen plant with succulent foliage that forms a low-growing mat. The name "stonecrop" comes from Middle English and refers to the plant's ability to grow in rocky, gravelly areas. Stonecrop is evergreen perennial with a golden needle-like foliage, depending on how much sun it gets (more sun results in golden leaves). It sports tiny yellow flowers throughout the summer. And in the fall, the foliage takes on an orange or rust tone. It is widely spread in its place, that's why you can hang this plan in a container.

Angelina 'Stonecrop' Plant Care
Light- Grow Angelina stonecrop in full sun if possible, though it will tolerate some shade. Its golden foliage is promoted by a location in full sun.
Soil- This plant prefers a well-draining planting location with a neutral soil pH. It does well in sandy and gravelly soils that aren’t very fertile.
Water- Angelina stonecrop needs regular watering after you first plant it. But it is a drought-tolerant ground cover once established. However, Angelina stonecrop grown in a container might need more frequent waterings than if it were planted in the ground.
Temperature and Humidity- Suitable for USDA zones 5 to 8, Angelina stonecrop is somewhat tolerant to cold weather during the growing season. It can handle temperatures several degrees below freezing and still bounce back just fine during the growing season. It also tolerates heat and humidity well, as long as it’s not stuck in standing water.
Fertilizer- Stonecrop plants generally prefer lean soil, so fertilizer usually won't be necessary for your plant.
Propagating Angelina Stonecrop- Angelina stonecrop plants are easy to propagate by rooting. In fact, stems that break off from the main plant through natural occurrences often root all by themselves.
