Plant details

Golden Anniversary is a handsome variety without becoming invasive. The pretty pink flowers are almost eclipsed by the brilliance of the golden variegated foliage. In all but the most severe winters its foliage persists, making it good for winter containers especially hanging baskets, teamed with winter flowering pansies, primroses or polyanthus. Elsewhere it makes superb ground cover in shade under trees and shrubs, including dry shade where few plants survive. Underplant with dwarf bulbs, and chop back whenever stems become invasive.
