Description How to Grow Delivery

Comprising six stunning and versatile perennials chosen for their eye-catching golden or variegated foliage or bright yellow blooms, this beautifully harmonising collection of golden-themed perennials is sure to brighten any border, container, rockery or herb garden. There’s a plant for every corner of the garden!

Golden Yellow Tones Colour Collection comprises jumbo plugs of the following varieties:

  • Ajuga ‘Golden Beauty’ – a stunning variegated bugle whose scalloped evergreen foliage is beautifully edged in creamy yellow. Young leaves are pinkish bronze in colour. Short, stout spikes of deep lilac-blue flowers are produced in spring. This tough creeping perennial makes ideal ground cover or underplanting, or a lovely addition to a woodland garden or mixed container, thriving in part to full shade. It prefers moist but well-drained soils, though is tolerant of both very moist soils and dry periods. Height: 15cm (6in). Spread: 50cm (20in).
  • Lamium maculatum ‘Cannon’s Gold’ – Lamium or dead nettle (non-stinging!) are very useful hardy perennials. Tough and resilient, they thrive in shade on almost any soil, making ideal ground cover or a must-have addition to a woodland or wildlife garden. ‘Cannon’s Gold’ is a stunning variety with bright golden-green toothed foliage. In summer, the clusters of bright purple-pink flowers provide a rich supply of nectar for pollinating insects. Provided it is watered until established, this attractive dead nettle is a great plant for tricky spots in dry shade. Its ideal conditions are moist but well-drained soil in partial or deep shade. Height: 15cm (6"). Spread: 60cm (24").
  • Salvia officinalis ‘Icterina’ – a stunning variegated sage that provides year-round colour, with each leaf generously painted with bright golden green. Holding an RHS Award of Garden Merit, this aromatic evergreen shrub makes a fabulous addition to well-drained borders and container displays. Leaves are a useful culinary herb. Short spikes of lilac flowers, loved by bees, may be produced in summer. Thrives in full sun and a free-draining soil, showing good drought resistance. Height and spread: 40cm (16").
  • Sedum rupestre ‘Angelina’ – forming a low carpet of bright yellow or golden-green needle-like leaves, tinged with orange in autumn, this eye-catching evergreen stonecrop makes a superb addition to rockeries, stone walls and drought-resistant container schemes, as well as making great edging or groundcover for a dry spot. Clusters of starry yellow flowers are held on upright stems in summer. Thrives in poor or medium soils in full sun with good drainage. Height: 15cm (6in). Spread: 60cm (24in).
  • Thymus ‘Golden Queen’ – a very pretty and vigorous variegated lemon thyme that excels as an ornamental as well as an edible. Each leaf is daintily edged in yellow to give a shimmering effect. Forming a compact little bush, this hardy evergreen produces short spikes of lilac-pink flowers in summer that are highly attractive to bees. Given a sunny spot with good drainage, this versatile herb will thrive in beds, containers, rock gardens, stone walls and even cracks in paving. Leaf colouring intensifies in winter, making ‘Silver Posie’ a lovely addition to winter and spring container displays. Thrives in full sun and a free-draining soil, showing good drought resistance. Height: 15cm (6"). Spread: 25cm (10").
  • Viola ‘Sorbet’ – prolific, free-flowering and very winter-hardy violas that will give months of colour from spring to autumn. This reliable perennial has a neat, uniform habit that is perfectly suited to hanging baskets, window boxes and containers. Thrives in sun or part shade in moist but well-drained soils. Height: 20cm (8"). Spread: 23cm (9").
