MADE IN THE SHADE
The 2020 Perennial Plant of the Year gets glowing reviews from us, too. That’s because its chartreuse or lime green foliage seems to glow in shady spots, which adds depth and interest to the landscape. It even adapts to part sun with a brighter shade of yellow, just be sure it has ample moisture during stretches of dry weather. Sun King is no shrinking violet either, measuring 30-36 inches tall and almost as wide, it’s a fast grower that stays in its lane, with little to no reseeding/spreading. July through September brings tiny, cream-colored flowers that turn into attractive dark berries.
We like to cut ours back a bit in late spring to encourage fullness and branching.
