Chrysogonum is very easy to grow, but prefers rich, consistently moist, well-drained soil. Chrysogonum will tolerate much more sun in cooler climates than in the hot South. Try combining this popular native with other charming woodland plants such as hosta, heuchera, selaginella, or epimedium. Green and gold also makes a great color bowl filler.
