‘Sun King’ is a golden leaved selection of Japanese Spikenard, a tough and bold, deer resistant perennial for partial shade. Slow to establish, but within a couple of years impressive clumps form. In September, branches of creamy white flower orbs are abuzz with pollinators, which late develop into black fruit. Plants grow 4-5′ tall and up to 6′ wide with age.
Exposure: Sun/part shade
Hardiness zones: 4-8
