A glistening yellow carpet on the ground – ethereal floating on the water as an aquatic, this versatile glowing ground cover is one of our favorites! Evergreen, flat growth will light up your life! Light shade is ideal – average soil, water or tolerates submersion in water for long periods (months). Also great in pots, hanging baskets!

Liquid gold for a dull shady corner! Not invasive like the common green type, “Golden Pennywort” forms a low super dense weed-suppressing mat to only 2” tall & 2’ wide, filling in bare spots & weaving itself between plants. This is one groundcover that really does what it’s supposed to do! Cool with dark foliage like Uncinia uncinata ‘Red’ & Heuchera x micrantha 'Melting Fire'. It’s a primo choice for cascading over the edge of a bed, barrel, hanging basket or trailing into a pond. EASY, fairly fast & low maintenance.

This easy-to-grow moisture lover is a marvelous, low-growing, golden groundcover whose dime-sized leaves give the ground a year-round golden color. Gold moneywort is perfect for brightening an area in the garden or interweaving to make some great color combinations. While Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea' grows in shade, it needs a tiny bit of morning sun to maintain the golden color year round.
