Green and Gold
Chrysogonum virginianum 'Eco Lacquered Spider'
This stoloniferous very fast spreading selection of Green and Gold was found by friend and noted plantsman Dr. Don Jacobs in Central Georgia. Chrysogonum virginianum Green and Gold flowers to 3-4" high with yellow button flower suppressed against the foliage in late spring. It can spread beyond 8'wide. The plant sends out on its stolons 2-3' each spring flat across the soil surface developing rosettes sometimes several feet away and makes a terrific addition to the front of the perennial garden where low ground cover is needed. It offers great soil erosion protection as this selection develops a thick carpet quickly spreading 2-3' per year. Looks great in a woodland setting as well. The plant produces a beautiful deep yellow flowers in the spring. The rosettes at the end of the stems will attach themselves to the ground as the rosettes mature each fall. Another feature that we like is that it has proven to be been Long Legged Goat, (deer) resistant for us.
