Details

4" tall (in flower) x 24" wide (cutting propagated). This plant was discovered growing on the rugged hills surrounding Tiffindell, South Africa's only alpine ski area. A vigorous grower with deep, water-seeking roots, 'Tiffindell Gold' has soft, one inch high emerald green foliage and an impressive display of golden button-like flowers that illuminate the garden beginning in late spring. Deadheading extends the bloom season through the summer. This perennial is a wide spreading, low care groundcover whose stems root as they spread to make a weed-resistant sod. It is invaluable for carpeting large patches in perennial beds or as a grass replacement in low traffic areas. It even looks good in the winter as its foliage is evergreen. Plant 'Tiffindell Gold' in any well- drained soil.

    The other two plants, very small lived, are now 3 inches across, no flowers
    grown in very good conditions. Everything else I planted there grew and bloomed.

        We fought five different test plants in preparation for re-doing our back yard. This is the only one that didn't make it. This year was especially hot and dry.

        Comments about High Country Gardens Cotula Tiffindell Gold:

        I bought this years ago from HCG. It lives and slowly spreads in gravel along a stone path. It is super tough, survives and blooms without any care at all, here in Seattle where it is soggy for 8 months then does not rain for 4 months. I get a few volunteers in between brick paving, they look just like the parent.

        Comments about High Country Gardens Cotula Tiffindell Gold:

        it lives in harsh areas in my yard where nothing else i have tried lived. it is absolutely charming in bloom! seems to do fine in clayish soil. i hand water some the first season to get it started and help it spread faster but have left for over a week and it is fine in the hot dry utah summer.it does not seem to like the shipping process and several i have ordered came dead or near dead, HCG was great about replacing these but i had to wait a season to get them. try to be home when your shipment arrives and plant unpack and plant quickly. i will be ordering more of these!

        Comments about High Country Gardens Cotula Tiffindell Gold:

        I can't really provide product comments because only one plant survived and it is too small at this point to say anything about it.

              Comments about High Country Gardens Cotula Tiffindell Gold:

              California is in a 4-year drought so I was looking for a drought tolerant GREEN ground cover but wanted the bang of a bit of color. I love the sweet little "balls" of yellow - so different from anything else in my garden! I was amazed at how rapidly the plants spread and how profuse the bloom. Also, have not seen the plant in the local nurseries, so it's something unique in my garden.
              One of my better purchases for sure!

              Q & A

              Suggested Companion Plants:

              USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

              To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

              • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
              • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

              Find Your Planting Zone:
