Basket-of-gold is one of those plants that loves to grow in the least likely of place -- cracks between paving stones, the edge of gravel paths and patios, rocky outcroppings, between the stacked stones of a retaining wall, and more. It loves a baked spot with excellent drainage but will struggle in hot, humid areas and tends not to do well in the South.
But where it does well, it's a showstopper. It will reseed prolifically in little cracks, filling an area each spring with dazzling neon yellows. After it finishes blooming, the grayish-green foliage makes an attractive mat in the perennial garden.
'Homestead Purple' verbena looks especially stunning when paired with the brilliant yellow mounds of basket-of-gold.Phlox
Creeping phlox blooms in spring with basket-of-gold and teams beautifully with the silvery foliage of basket-of-gold after it is done blooming.Rock cress
Purple rock cress makes a great partner with basket-of-gold, cascading over a low retaining wall or in the rock garden.
