Like overgrown buttercups, Chrysogonum virginianum 'Pierre', commonly known as Goldenstar, resembles thousand of small butterscotches atop pillows of green. This low growing, herbaceous mat-forming plant, is similar in structure to Ajuga.

Prized for a long blooming time, the star-shaped sunny-yellow flowers (1- 1 1/2 inches long) dot mint-like foliage in early spring and continue sporadically throughout the summer. Superb in terms of both spread and degree to which it propagates flowers, Pierre creates a delightful ground cover or edging in any perennial border.

Though Pierre does bear fruit, it is non-ornamental. The real focal point of this plant is the semi-evergreen, jade-green opposite leaves that are round-toothed along the edges, and reach 1-2 inches long. Excellent as a facer in naturalized gardens, 'Pierre' is especially useful for partial shade borders where, when in bloom, the flowers resemble tiny night lights in the darker shade.

With a limited tolerance of foot traffic and a fair to good weed-suppressant rating, as well as a willingness to tolerate a wide range of well-drained, moist soils, this hardy perennial is an almost fool-proof choice.

Because it spreads indefinitely, you can plant Pierre in large areas where you need expansive coverage and have the added benefit of long-lasting bloom season with golden blossoms polka dotting a carpet of green foliage.

Interesting Facts
Pierre is native to North Carolina and as such, is lovely in woodland garden scenes.

Things to Note
If grown in full sun, Pierre may need more water.

In zones 8-9, this plant will require afternoon or full shade.

Gardener Tips
Pierre is a perfect gentleman combined with evergreen and deciduous shrubs, small trees, ferns, and herbaceous perennials.

Black Eyed Susan and Mary Todd Daylilies are a lovely duo to join with Pierre for a sunny-side up display of blossoms.

I love my green and gold! They arrived just in time to plant and have already started to spread. Every plant (I ordered 25 on 2 separate occasions) has already established and are thriving! I will definitely buy more.

I ordered 24 pots to cover a large shaded area I was on vacation when they arrived but friend put open box in shaded area and watered once. This was not ideal but I have to say. ALL 24 plants look extremely healthy. I will be planting this afternoon and have... Read full review >

I was introduced to Green and Gold at a presentation on how to cut down on weeds in a garden without the use of mulch.

The plants purchased recently are for a second garden. I have every confidence they will work as well as those in the first garden. ... Read full review >
