This eastern US native should be a staple in all gardens...large or small. Native in dry open shade, Chrysogonum virginianum makes a truly superb garden plant. The patches of 6" tall rosettes burst forth in spring to form 1' wide clumps of fuzzy thumb-shaped green leaves and are topped, starting in May (NC), with dozens of 1", yellow-petaled, daisy-like flowers. Chrysogonum 'Pierre' was selected as a very flat growing, long-flowering form which, in cool weather, can remain in flower through the summer (but not in the South). It was given to Pierre Bennerup, the intrepid owner of Sunny Border Nursery, by the late John Gallagher of CT, who we think got it from the late Dr. Edgar T. Wherry.
