Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
AURINIA saxatilis 'Summit'
Basket-of-Gold, Summit Aurinia
Basket of gold is a low-growing perennial native to the mountainous regions of south and central Europe and Turkey. Its evergreen gray green leaves form a neat mound from which arise dense clusters of small bright yellow four-petaled flowers. The spring blooms literally cover the plant and should be lightly sheared off when spent. The cultivar 'Summit' is notable for its uniform plant size and early flowering start in spring.
Not tolerant of heavy clay soils, basket of gold prefers sunny site with good drainage. A great plant for the rock garden or as a ground cover, it looks spectacular spilling over garden walls in the spring.
