One of the most surprising little perennials I have is this remarkable Korean Goatsbeard.
I hadn't even heard of it until a friend told me about it .. and by chance I saw one at a garden center and snapped it up. Of course once I realized what a little gem this was, after researching it on the web , I went back to get a few more and they were GONE naturally .. other gardeners KNEW !
Even with enjoying how gorgeous a little plant it is in Spring and summer .. I have not seen it go such a fantastic fiery orange as it has this Autumn. It looks artificial it is such an outrageous colour .. I have another one in the front garden but it has not reached this colour .. I tend to think because it younger and newer to my garden ? .. and this one is in the SUN bed so lots of direct sun. What ever makes this little wonder this impossible colour .. I am very grateful .. it amazes me every time I look at it .. and no matter where you are in the back garden .. you can spot this delightful little 'precious" I fear I am some what like Gollum and the "Ring" I have to admit favoritism when it comes to this "one" : )
