Description

This gold form of Japanese Spikenard makes a bold statement. It emerges in spring with large, bright gold leaves and providing it gets a few hours of sun daily, the foliage will remain bright gold throughout the summer. In full shade, foliage will be chartreuse to lime green in colour. Tall 60cm (2') spikes of tiny white flowers appear in summer followed by inedible, purple berries late summer.. Fast growing and deciduous. Shelter from strong winds. Barry Yinger found this beauty in a Japanese department store nursery and brought it to the US. It is said to be one of the most amazing new perennial introductions in the last decade.
