Basket of Gold is one of the most popular of spring-flowering #perennials, most often seen in rock #gardens or as a border edging. Basket of Gold is a drought tolerant, #evergreen groundcover that prefers full sun. It forms a low bushy mound of grey-green leaves, smothered by masses of tiny, bright golden-yellow #flowers for several weeks. After bloom, the #silver green foliage makes a wonderful groundcover all season long and into the winter!
