Sedum rupestre 'Angelina' a good location, that is, a bad location, this evergreen succulent flourishes to the point where it becomes a functional groundcover

These greens and oranges are even more attractive than its bright yellow summer color! All you need is poor soil, heat, no water, and full sun. Brad was out cleaning, checking, and tidying and he took time to point out how beautiful this sedum was. It's growing near the Tram Kiosk in the Administration Building parking lot, and no doubt appreciates the extra heat that re-radiates from the asphalt surface in warm weather. I have used it for ground-cover in sunny containers and it overwinters nicely here in Zone 7.
