Description

It is the white ear-like structures that are the flowers and the golden colored are bracts. It is an evergreen upright shrub, 4 to 10 feet tall, 2 to 5 feet wide; opposite, ovate, dark green leaves, up to 6 inches long, 2.4 inches wide. Produces showy yellow blossoms from late spring to early summer. Golden Shrimp Plant sends out underground runners. With a few plants and a few years, your Golden Shrimp Plant will spread to fill in spaces.

Although golden shrimp plant tolerates moist soil, it performs best when the surface of the soil is allowed to dry slightly between waterings. When watering, provide enough water to saturate the roots to a depth of about 6 inches.

Golden shrimp plant requires only a moderate level of maintenance to keep it looking its best. Pinch the tips occasionally early in the season, as pinching the tips encourages bushier growth.
