Discovered as a chance seedling in Eden, N.C. 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.
