Design IdeasUniquely resistant to heat and infertile soils, Gold Star is a natural candidate for drought-resistant gardens. Spreading form can be used in an irregular mass as groundcover or as single mounds of color among both shrubs and perennials. Makes a good foundation cover around building walls or along the base of fence lines. A lovely carefree filler for country garden in spots bathed in afternoon heat.
