These hardy American perennials will satisfy your sweet tooth without making you pay a heavy price. In almost any garden soil, their foliage is full and dependable, enlivened by spraylike panicles of small flowers. Most prefer a moist well-drained setting and will happily linger at the edge of a pond.
Esteemed for its bright golden foliage, this moisture-lover delights with fragrant Astilbe-like clusters of minute creamy white flowers. Upright clump-forming stems are garbed in prominently veined, deeply dissected leaves, which transmute a vivid chartreuse glow as summer approaches.
Companions like Ophiopogon ‘Nigrescens’ and Geranium ‘Espresso’ make ‘Aurea’s lambent accents appear even more exceptional; protection from hot afternoon sun and fertile, moderately wet soil ensure its success.
