$ 7.88

Size

Golden Groundsel is an attractive perennial providing cheery yellow blooms early in the spring. It spreads by runners and creates a lovely flowering ground cover for shady areas. It looks stunning in the spring when planted en masse. It should be planted in shade, part shade, dappled shade or morning sun. It is not fussy about soil but needs good drainage.

Golden Groundsel would make a wonderful addition to a woodland garden, naturalized gardens, rain garden, garden borders, cottage gardens or along water sources as long as the space is in the shade or part shade.
