Description

Soleirolia soleirolii 'Aurea' is the gold-green leaf form of the well-known creeping perennial, Mind-your-own-Business. It has foliage that is brighter than the usual green form of Soleirolia soleirolii and is perhaps most accurately described as a golden limegreen colour rather than a true gold. It makes interesting contrasts when planted in combination with the green-leaf form and 'Alba', the silver-leaf form. It is perfect for brightening up dark corners and it quickly makes a soft mat of delicate growth that will hide any of those unpleaseant views that can lurk in even the most inspirational of gardens.

Recommended.
