Golden Knee Characteristics
Golden Knee are attractive groundcover perennials with profuse and long-lived blooms. They prefer consistently moist, acidic, and fertile soils. Shade can be heavy, but sun dappled or a few hours of sun is appreciated. They can survive in full sun if soils are consistently moist and never let to dry out. They spread by reaching "arms" that occasionally root as they touch the ground. Golden Knee can also self-seed to propagate. To keep the plants looking tidy, deadhead spent flowers by removing the stems.
Golden Knee are hardy groundcovers with little susceptibility to serious insect or disease problems. Some mildews may appear in damp areas with poor air circulation.
