Sorry we are not accepting anymore pre-orders for shipping/pickup. We need this time to prepare the plants for early orders already placed, get the shelves filled and ready for everyone else that drops by when we are open. Sorry absolutely no more email/phone orders. Please use the site as a guide and bring your wish list with you to streamline your in person safe shopping experience. Promise to add surprise plants each week to shelves not found on the site.

Aralia c. Sun King

$22.95

Golden Japanese Spikenard 2020 Perennial of the Year (PPA)  Please note these are 2 gallon pot size – unable to ship.
Looking for something uniquely different for shade?  Try this tropical-looking golden beauty with large compound leaves that measure up to 3 feet long!   An excellent complement to Hosta and woodland perennials, ‘Sun King’ emerges mid-spring with bright gold leaves held on nicely contrasting reddish brown stems.  If given at least a few hours of sun a day, the foliage will remain yellow all summer.  In heavier shade, the foliage ranges from chartreuse to lime green. 

This plant quickly forms a large clump of foliage which amazingly resists deer browsing.  It reportedly grows just three feet tall and wide, though many plantsmen believe it will grow larger over time. 

In mid to late summer, interesting racemes of tiny white flowers are produced followed by deep purplish black, inedible berries.  Like most Aralias, the flowers attract honeybees.   Zone 4
