Proven Winners

Sunny color for semi-shady sites.

This is the solution to many landscape challenges. An excellent groundcovering subshrub for shade, Golden Rule has colorful orange new growth and attractive yellow foliage. Unlike 'Brigadoon', it does not revert. Yellow summer flowers up to 2" across add to its appeal. Although it is not as aggressive as the green-leafed varieties, it will benefit from a trimming one or two times per year.
