Chrysocephalum Silver & Gold

Category: Chrysocephalum

Aust Wonders

A beautiful colour contrast between silvery foliage and bright yellow, button-like flower clusters.

Silver & Gold is a thick, mat forming ground cover that is very useful in lots of different ways. It can cover up to one square metre, and acts as an excellent weed suppressant. It also works well as a natural mulch to keep the soil cooler.

The grey-green foliage is a complementary contrast to other garden plants, and you’ll see stunning golden flower clusters covering the plant for most of the year, bringing an exciting flush of colour to the garden.

Silver & Gold is fast growing and sturdy, handling light frosts and periods of dryness. And not only is this variety highly effective as a ground cover, but it also looks great in pots and tubs, on banks and next to retaining walls.
