With its large and artfully variegated textural leaves, this robust perennial becomes a bold centerpiece anywhere it's planted. Vibrant lemon-yellows paint broad margins on grayish green arching foliage, a welcome sight especially in the quiet days of early spring. Gradually the distinctive basal mound grows taller, sending up flower stalks with elongated leaves and dainty small clusters of nodding blue blossoms. Moist soil where it's sunny, afternoon shade in drier sites, and a good shearing of the lanky stems will keep 'Axminster Gold' looking resplendent.
