Eastern U.S. Native
Soft green, clump-forming foliage hugs the ground and becomes covered with long-blooming, star-shaped, golden flowers. Foliage can remain evergreen in mild winters. Chrysogonum Pierre will brighten a shady spot when combined with small trees and ferns. Our plant spacing recommendations are based on how quickly these plants will spread in their first season of growth.

Chrysogonum General Information

Chrysogonum is a low-growing, mat-forming plant, similar in structure to Ajuga. Excellent in terms of spread and the extent to which it covers itself with flowers, it creates a delightful ground cover or edging in the perennial border Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Chrysogonum Plant Care

Likes a moist rich soil. No rampant spreading, just consistent even growth. Flowers continuously - no deadheading needed. Easily divided in late spring. Tolerates limited foot traffic. Blooms best in cooler situations.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
