These are pictures of Sedum rupestre 'Angelina'. I love the way it rears its many heads.

    They remind me of seahorses. :)

    It looks really good if you mix it in with the darker forms of rupestre too. Blue spruce is one of my favourites. Angelina really glows and brightens up dark planting but you get a nice contrast between the yellow flowers and the foliage with the darker forms.

    Definitely see what you mean @BobTheGardener, it's perhaps a better match. I read/watched too many stories with dragons in them, I even see newts as little mini-dragons.

    Here be Dragons is the title of one of my children's books.

    Continuation of the ode to Sedum rupestre 'Angelina'. It has so many interesting shades of colour. It looks a bit like an underwater plant gently swaying. So far it has been a great plant in that it is neither delicate nor a thug. Its period of interest exceeds 11 months I would say.
