This vigorous, mat-forming, evergreen species has electric golden-yellow foliage that holds its color through the heat of summer. The foliage tips sometimes develop an orangey hue. In early summer, ‘Angelina’ has terminal clusters of star-shaped, vibrant yellow flowers. The drooping buds face upward when they open and the plant can grow to 6 inches tall and 12 inches wide. It is superlative as a groundcover, spilling over rock walls, and in containers. It also makes an excellent accent for plants with dark foliage.
CareProvide well-drained, gravelly soil in full sun. It can also take a bit of shade. Give this freely spreading plant room to grow.
PropagationTake softwood cuttings or root leaves in early summer. Divide in spring.
ProblemsMealybugs, scale, slugs, and snails.
