Discovered as a chance seedling in Eden, NC by Dr. Richard Lighty, this award-winning Mt. Cuba introduction is quickly making its way into gardens throughout the U.S. and further abroad. Toothed, heart-style green leaves define a compact, semievergreen basal rosette beneath stiff, multibranching stems adorned with a profusion of densely covered golden-yellow spires. Counting garden designers, florists plus Hairstreaks, Sulphurs and Skippers among its many fans, ‘Golden Fleece’s superb, low-growing bushy ground cover delivers long-lasting, radiant late season blooms and thrives in sunny, somewhat fertile well-drained sites, yet tolerates varied conditions.
Size: 18" – 2' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.
