HORTICULTURAL
Plant Sale Text: Green-and-gold makes a nice semi-evergreen groundcover or edging for a path. Good drainage is essential for this southeastern native perennial. If grown on a slope or with a gravel mulch, you may well find seedlings near the parent plant. Green-and-gold is a versatile long-bloomer so you are sure to enjoy it in your garden. Try applying a thin pea-gravelmulch around your plants to encourage them to produce seedlings.
