Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
The glowing golden flowers of basket-of-gold will brighten any sunny spring border or rock garden. This low-growing perennial is native to the mountainous regions of South and Central Europe and Turkey. It has small, semi-evergreen leaves of gray-green and forms a neat mound. In spring it produces many clusters of small, bright yellow four-petaled flowers. These literally cover the plant and should be lightly sheared off when spent.
Basket-of-gold prefers a sunny site and average, friable soil with good drainage. There are several desirable cultivars available, including the dwarf 'Tom Thumb' and double-flowered 'Flore Pleno'.
