We have been very pleased with the performance of this Japanese selection of their native shrub mint, which eventually forms a 3' tall x 3' wide mass of upright stems clothed in 6" long, golden yellow leaves. In areas with warm summer nights, the intensity of the leaf color may fade in summer, but cutting the plant back will cause the plant to reflush with brighter foliage. Leucosceptrum japonicum 'Gold Angel' is topped in October and November (NC) with terminal spikes of yellow bottlebrush-like flowers.
