Product Overview

Chrysogonum virginianum 'Eco Lacquered Spider'
This perennial groundcover will spread by stolons and can reach many feet in a few years; foliage is a mix of chartreuse and green and is very glossy, cheery yellow buttercups cover the plant in spring; a vigorous groundcover

Eco Lacquered Spider Goldenstar is an herbaceous evergreen perennial with a ground-hugging habit of growth. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other garden plants with less refined foliage.

This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and is best cleaned up in early spring before it resumes active growth for the season. Deer don't particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. Gardeners should be aware of the following characteristic(s) that may warrant special consideration:

  • Spreading

Eco Lacquered Spider Goldenstar is recommended for the following landscape applications:

  • Mass Planting
  • Border Edging
  • General Garden Use
  • Groundcover
  • Container Planting

Features

Eco Lacquered Spider Goldenstar is covered in stunning yellow buttercup flowers at the ends of the stems in late spring. Its attractive glossy heart-shaped leaves emerge grayish green in spring, turning forest green in color with distinctive chartreuse edges the rest of the year. The fruit is not ornamentally significant. The purple stems are very colorful and add to the overall interest of the plant.

Planting & Growing

Eco Lacquered Spider Goldenstar will grow to be only 6 inches tall at maturity extending to 12 inches tall with the flowers, with a spread of 3 feet. Its foliage tends to remain low and dense right to the ground. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 10 years.

This plant does best in full sun to partial shade. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist growing conditions, but will not tolerate any standing water. It is not particular as to soil pH, but grows best in rich soils. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. This is a selection of a native North American species. It can be propagated by division; however, as a cultivated variety, be aware that it may be subject to certain restrictions or prohibitions on propagation.

Eco Lacquered Spider Goldenstar is a fine choice for the garden, but it is also a good selection for planting in outdoor pots and containers. Because of its spreading habit of growth, it is ideally suited for use as a 'spiller' in the 'spiller-thriller-filler' container combination; plant it near the edges where it can spill gracefully over the pot. Note that when growing plants in outdoor containers and baskets, they may require more frequent waterings than they would in the yard or garden.
