Tradescantia, "Sweet Kate." It is a fabulous cut flower and the unopened buds will open while in the vase.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

In the category of gold perennials for shade, several gold spiderworts (Tradescantia cultivars, zones 5 to 9) have hit the market over the past few years. Some can take more sun than others, but they truly shine in light to partial shade. 'Sweet Kate' is a common variety, with blue flowers. 'Sunshine Charm', pictured, has pink. Spiderworts are adaptable plants when it comes to water, but I think these gold varieties do better in average to moist soil. They also tend to be modest clumpers (to 18 inches tall and wide), unlike their spreading, nongold counterparts.

y favorite find of the past few years hands down is 'Little Honey' oakleaf hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia 'Little Honey', zones 5 to 9). If you know oakleaf, you know it is an easy-to-grow plant, works well even in dry shade and blooms in summer with big cones of white flowers. This honey of a hydrangea adds outstanding gold foliage to that mix, and at 4 feet by 4 feet, it's a smaller plant that will fit well in gardens of any size. The more sun it gets, the more gold it will be, but it grows best is part shade.
