I just got back from a trip to Michigan.
I brought back some plants
that my mother gave me from her garden. One of the plants
she gave me originally came from my grandparent's house in Vermont. My mother called it "Golden Glo"...
I've looked through some of my books and have not found this plant
by that name... I haven't even found a picture of the plant
yet! It must be one of those "old timey" plants
that are too common to be in a book! LOL!
IS THERE SUCH A plant
, NAMED "GOLDEN GLO(W)"?
Let me try to describe it... Sorry, but i don't have a pic.It is usually grown close to buildings and fences. It gets very tall (4 or 5 ft tall). It's sort of like the perrenial sunflowers that i have in my garden (Helianthus Maximilliani)... It has large yellow flowers
, and fully shaped green leaves, with odd shaped forks or fingers on them.
It is very hardy and comes back every year with little or no care. It spreads from the roots, sending up single shoots. Each plant
is a tall, single stalk and they are usually within a few inches of each other.
It might be more common in the North, but i'm not sure- i just haven't seen it here in SC.
I just want to know what the scientific name for it is so i can properly care for it.
I appreciate your help!
