This stunning carpet of gold makes an exceptional flat, wide groundcover that offers year-round interest in the garden. Bright, golden yellow during summer, the foliage darkens to deep orange in fall and takes on rich, burgundy plum for winter. Plants perform well in hot, humid areas in part or full sun. Let them cascade over a bank, complement stonework or cover space planted en masse 18-24" apart.
