Chrysogonum Plants are hardy perennials.
They come into bloom with daisy like flowers of yellow in the late spring, and may also flower in summer and autumn.
As it is a small plant it is ideal for rockeries. Some common names for Chrysogonum include Goldenstar, Golden knee, and Green and Gold.

Ideally it is best to grow this plant from runners. If planning to grow Chrysogonum pants from seed then you should use fresh seed and sow as soon as seed is available at a depth of 7 mm.
Plants should be grown in a partly shaded area of the garden that has good drainage, and a soil of pH 6 to 7.5 that is moist in nature.
If you plan to first grow goldenstar seedlings indoors then they will take about three weeks to germinate at a temperature of 22 degrees centigrade.
The seedlings should be planted out in the early spring or autumn with a spacing of about 15 cm.
Chrysogonum plants pretty much look after themselves, though soil should be kept moist.
They can be divided to obtain more plants; this should be done in September. It is usually easier to take runners if you require more plants.
