Golden Foliage and Airy Pink Blooms

This natural beauty is glorious in a meadow garden over a long season of bloom.
PPAF 'Minmadore'.

Also known as California Lilac or New Jersey Tea, Ceanothus is a healthy North American native that attracts butterflies all summer with its airy white blooms. The Marie™ series takes this natural treasure and improves on it with new looks. Marie Gold™ is named for its distinctive foliage, which starts with a chartreuse green shade, then at the end of the season blanches to pure gold color. And that is just the leaves!

The blooms are equally magnificent, bearing the same fine, airy pompon structure as wild Ceanothus, but this time in a blushing pink color. The pink blooms are set off by red flower stems, and the warm colors continue later in the season when the red seed capsules are revealed.

Marie Gold™ is a boon in the garden for more than just its looks. It is also a very healthy and reliable plant that produces a sweet fragrance, attracts butterflies and other pollinators, and repels deer! It creates a beautiful effect in mass plantings along edges or in a meadow-themed garden, and just one makes an excellent specimen plant for a small space.

Plant Marie Gold™ in average, well-drained soil in full sun, and it will do the rest, becoming drought tolerant once established and swiftly reaching its mature height of about 42 inches high and wide. After flowering, Marie Gold™ benefits from pruning to help refine its shape, and with some guidance it will grow into a blooming machine with a very bushy form! Zones 6 to 9.
