Illuminate your garden with the radiant beauty of Chrysogonum virginianum 'Pierre', affectionately known as Goldenstar. This charming perennial is treasured for its star-shaped, golden-yellow flowers that bloom generously from spring to fall, creating a brilliant carpet of color that brightens any landscape.
In addition to its stunning blooms, Goldenstar features attractive green, lance-shaped leaves, providing visual interest even when not in flower. It's a low-growing plant, making it an excellent choice for groundcover, borders, or containers.
Goldenstar isn't just beautiful, it's also easy to grow and care for. It's adaptable to various soil types, and its semi-evergreen nature means it maintains its appeal throughout the year.
Plant in part shade to full sun. Though it tolerates full sun, it prefers some afternoon shade in hotter climates.
Provide well-drained soil. Goldenstar thrives in a range of soil types, from sandy to clay, as long as the soil drains well.
Water moderately. The plant is somewhat drought-tolerant once established, but regular watering will promote optimal growth.
No pruning is necessary, but you can pinch back stems to maintain a compact shape and encourage fuller growth.
Apply a layer of mulch around the base to conserve moisture and suppress weeds.
Bring home the Chrysogonum virginianum 'Pierre' Goldenstar, and let its cheerful blooms bring a touch of sunshine to your garden, regardless of the season.
