'Cool Gold' has a soft, cool, clear gold foliage that retains its colour throughout the season. It's fast growing and makes a wonderful bright spot in the shade garden. This is a gold version of the BC native piggyback plant that graces the shady spaces of coastal BC. The common name comes from the habit of piggyback plant to produce young plantlets that sit on top of the mature foliage before falling to the ground to root in.
Moist forests and streambanks in the lowland and montane zones; common in coastal BC, north to Alaska and south to California.
