"Baggensen's Gold"

"Baggensen's Gold" is an easy plant to locate and grow.  If anything it can be a bit too enthusiastic and needs fairly frequent clipping to keep it from exploding.  It's easy to shape into reasonable 'trees', or to provide a hedge that doesn't look too out of place against the railway.

This variety, as the name suggests, has a distinctive yellow foliage.

Planted in: Well drained, crumbly soil; Cambridgeshire, UK.
