The Flower of Carolina


  • Product Info

    Green & Gold (Chrysogonum virginianum)
    Aster Family
    The bright yellow flowers of this evergreen groundcover start blooming as early as February and will sporadically bloom as late as November, although the true show is in mid-spring. Shade tolerant and even adaptable to mostly sun with adequate moisture, this wildflower thrives in most garden conditions. Green & Gold will not be a bully in the garden, but will spread modestly over time by reseeding and spreading clumps. Rabbits will eat the flowers, but there are generally enough to go around once you have an established patch.
