Fabulous golden strawberry yellow flowers
A golden treasure on steep slopes and open spaces. The eye of the beholder rests full of joy on the yellow flowers of the golden strawberry; it is also called Waldsteinia Ternata and belongs to the rose family. This bold beauty with bright yellow flowers is very expressive and delights with its dense growth. Its bright green leaves are always shiny, sometimes turning a little bronze in October or November. You can use Waldsteinia Ternata to border beds and plant borders by the wayside, as in a baroque garden. It will thrive in any perennial garden, in containers or planters on the patio, balcony or in the courtyard. The planters should have a hole at the bottom, as it does not like waterlogging. The versatile three-leaved Waldsteinia is also wonderfully suitable for planting on slopes in difficult areas, on steep slopes, mounds and for all kinds of open spaces. Waldsteinia Ternata is an evergreen ground cover and a perennial of great charm. Its yellow flowers cover offered areas with a golden glow from April to June. The golden strawberry grows to a height of 10-20cm.
Carpet golden strawberry needs little care and defeats weeds
The Carpet Golden Strawberry prefers partial shade or shade. It tolerates sun if the soil is sufficiently moist. It can tolerate temporary drought if it is already well rooted. Soil that is too loamy can be loosened with a little sand and compost. It likes humus-rich soil best, but also thrives in normal garden soil. Phosphorous fertiliser should only be used from the 2nd year onwards. Cut back your sprouts again and again, then they will bloom more vigorously. As the robust Waldsteinia even thrives under trees, it is a good candidate for the shade garden. Why is it called the three-leaved woodland steenia? Its attractively toothed leaves are always three-parted, its petals always exactly five! (Mr Waldstein was a botanist). Root pressure from other plants does not impress it, it even grows unperturbed under birch trees. You can plant it at any time of the year, taking 12 plants per square metre. The Waldsteinia harmonises perfectly with the undemanding, July to October dark purple flowering summer lilac, which grows up to two to three metres tall, and the purple forest vine with golden stamens.
