Easily identified by its fluorescent green foliage, golden creeping Jenny will grow in sunny spots as well as in the shade. Its small ruffled leaves will turn a bright yellow when planted in full sun. Shade-dwelling specimens will become a lime green. Profuse, bright yellow flowers appear in early summer.
Distinguishing traits. The ultimate groundcover if you are looking to quickly fill space, golden creeping Jenny provides year-round interest with its dense network of spreading foliage.
Keep it growing. While its rapid growth rate makes golden creeping Jenny a lifesaver in some gardens, it can be a burden in others. This cultivar is much less aggressive than the straight species, but its growth rate is still something to keep in mind — particularly in damp areas that provide perfect growing conditions. Take care growing near lawns or flower beds as it can overtake the plantings.
