Charming and sweet little low-maintenance plants to enchant your visitors. SunSparkler® Angelina's Teacup Sedum (Sedum rupestre 'Angelina's Teacup') effortlessly elevates the tone of your landscape plantings. Except you'll never be able to forget the enchanting form of these sweet, tiny succulents!

This easy-care plant is a designer secret. After all, they know that it's the little details that make such a difference in garden design. Enjoy the tight little "cushion" of bright color with this tiny teacup. No one can help noticing the intensity of the bold yellow succulent leaves. Or the way the color deepens into a showy, electric orange to red in fall!

Introduced by world-famous breeder Chris Hansen, Angelina's Teacup is a very compact form of the original Angelina Sedum. Why not use both varieties throughout your yard? You'll love the contrasting form and consistent color. This trailing Sedum rarely blooms, but occasionally does produce star-shaped blossoms late in the season.

This special, low-growing groundcover is a foliage plant that you can count on all season long. Tough as nails, Angelina's Teacup is almost a "plant it and forget it" type of perennial that can be easily grown by garden newbies. The foliage display lasts from the first days of spring to the first frost of winter. It's even evergreen in the warmer zones of USDA hardiness zone 4 to 9. Also known as Stonecrop, Sedum is cold hardy, heat tolerant and rabbit and deer resistant, too!

Planting and Application:

Of course, that fabulous color can be planted all along your garden beds to create a long, low-growing ribbon of color. Count on Angelina's Teacup to tie your whole design together. You'll want to tuck them all along your front walkway as a bright path for your guests to follow. They'll be perfectly happy decorating Rock Gardens or beautifying the edge of your planting beds.

Use them as an effective "filler" in your exterior container plantings and patio container gardens. They'll draw the eye, and add dramatic color. You can gift them as an easy-care, sun-loving exterior container plant potted up in Cactus mix. They are perfect for beginning plant lovers! Use glazed pots in orange and red for a dynamic look. Or try the restful tones of turquoise and peacock blue. Either way, it will look great!

Trust us, this little plant will inspire your creativity! Get the kids involved as a fun afternoon project. (Psst...did you know that Angelina is the name of a popular ballerina mouse cartoon?) Add them to a tiny "Fairy Garden" on your patio or deck. Have fun accessorizing your dreamy little garden with really...anything! How about a gnome lazing on a dollhouse-sized chaise lounge? Or a flock of funny flamingo cupcake toppers around a mirror placed flat to mimic water?

Did you know that Sedum is listed as a Firewise plant for many states? It's a perfect choice to decorate the defensible space around your home and other structures. Sedums are also great for water-wise, Xeriscape gardens. They'll grow into a citrine-colored mass-planted mat that will make you smile every time you step outside.

  • Cheery Hot Golden-Yellow Mounds
  • Trailing Mat-Forming Sedum
  • Attention-Grabbing Succulent Foliage Turns Orange-Yellow in Fall
  • Outstanding "Filler" in Containers
  • Accents, Groundcover, Edge Your Paths & Planting Beds

#ProPlantTips for Care:

You will need to give them sunlight. All day, every day is just fine, but be sure these perennials get at least 6 hours of direct sun a day. Indoors, give them a very sunny window with bright light. To thrive, give Angelina's Teacup very well-drained soil. They'll grow in rough stuff, including sharply drained, sandy soils. For young plants, you'll want to water them regularly. Their roots are getting established in your soil that first season. If you are keeping them in a container, water them well every week or two, and allow the water to drain. They are drought-tolerant and rugged.

Go ahead and enjoy your vacation. They'll even forgive your occasional forgetfulness! All plants appreciate a 3-4 inch thick layer of arborist mulch around their roots. Do any gentle cleanup of dried foliage in early spring with a very light raking or by hand to avoid damage.

  • Best Color in Full Sun
  • Moderate to Low Soil Moisture Once Established
  • Nearly Any Very Well-Drained Soil Type
  • Prune Back Early Spring
  • Drought Tolerant & Deer Seldom Bother These

You are bound to fall in love with these little cuties. They make a perfect gift to cheer someone up and don't forget one (or two or more!) for yourself, too!
