Imagine wandering through an idyllic woodland with aurelian stars at your feet. That is something like what you experience with Golden Star.
Golden Star or Green-and-Gold, properly known as Chrysogonum virginianum, is an exceptional native plant for ground cover, especially in gardens with light shade. Yellow star-shaped flowers appear from spring through summer atop low-growing plants. It's deer resistant, and has no known pests or diseases. It also tolerates some foot traffic.
