Senecio aureus

Golden Ragwort

  • Tough and aggressive-growing
  • Early to mid spring brings golden, daisy-like flowers
  • Native
  • Deep green foliage remains semi-evergreen in many spots
  • Spreads thickly to form a ground covering mat
Aggressive growing and tough, this plant has a tender side that shows itself in early to mid-spring with an explosion of color that will shine like a spotlight in shady spots. Deep green foliage remains semi-evergreen in many spots and spreads thickly to form a ground covering mat. Early spring sees long stems extend above the foliage and burst into color in mid-April with an irresistible force of golden daisy-like flowers that is breathtaking. After bloom ends later in May, Senecio becomes a very dependable foliage groundcover that thrives in moist soils. It loves to fill empty holes in the landscape so give it room and rest assured that it will provide year round cover for many small native landscape critters.
