Brunnera are rhizomatous perennial shrubs popularly known for their wide range of cultivars with striking foliage colours. Diane’s Gold is a deciduous shrub, short in height but bright in colours. It is a clump-forming bush with chartreuse foliage and sprays of sky blue flowers. This attractive foliage retains its colours throughout the flourishing season. Diane’s Gold is native to the woodlands of Eastern Europe and is used for groundcover in shady areas.
Unlike its cousins that display yellow leaves, Diane’s Gold produces heart-shaped leaves of golden chartreuse colour. These hairy leaves are perfect for brightening up any dull corners in a garden. In April and May, it blooms tiny but showy sky-blue Forget-Me-Not flowers that look dazzling over the bright foliage. Its creeping habit allows it to spread and form a thick ground cover.
Diane’s Gold prefers shady areas in a garden. It prefers a cool spot with full or partial shade and a little morning sun will only help it grow healthier. It can tolerate moist soil but should be drained regularly. Avoid planting it in dry soil and water it moderately but allow a dry gap between consecutive watering sessions.
Diane’s Gold is a carefree growing and low maintenance shrub. This clump-forming deciduous shrub will grow up to a short height of 1 feet. Prune any damaged or unsightly leaves in spring.
This brightly shining low forming shrub looks great in a shady border or as a single gorgeous specimen in containers. Use in a mass planting or on banks and slopes for perfect ground cover.
