Cymbalaria muralis 'Brass Farthing'



24th August 2008


One of the benefits of growing awful weedy weeds is that from time to time an interesting seedling will turn up. I am hoping for great things from this gold leaved form as long as it survives!

I was quite convinced that this had joined the Dodo on a great voyage into the unknown during the winter, but it seems it is tougher than that!
Picture shows a normal green leaf with the plant for comparison.

It was a decade ago now that I spotted this gold leaved seedling growing out of the barn wall. At the time I was preparing to renovate the building, a job that is still not complete. Time flies faster than masonry. I have a few little pockets around the greenhouse where golden seedlings appear, little markers of where I have stood the stock plant on occasion.
