Cultivar Notes - 'Summit'
One of the most popular of spring-flowering perennials, most often seen in rock gardens or as a border edging. This forms a low bushy mound of grey-green leaves, smothered by masses of tiny, bright golden-yellow flowers for several weeks. This improved selection is compact and has excellent disease resistance. Clip plants back by half, immediately after blooming but do not prune in fall or early spring. Not easily divided.
Genus Notes - Aurinia
Aurinia is better known as Basket-of-Gold because it disappears completely under a mass of golden flowers when it blooms in midspring. The same people who cringe at the sight of gold in summer, swoon over Aurinia in April, so glad that spring has finally returned.
