Botanical Name: Heliotropium Arborescens

Heliotrope ‘Golden’ is an evergreen shrub growing approximately 80cm high and 80 cm wide. The broad, soft leaves have golden tones, but revert to lime green when the plant is grown in part shade. The leaves are like other Heliotropes in their textured appearance, with the familiar veins and oval to elliptical shape. The small clusters of fragrant flowers are mauve-purple and appear from spring to summer.

This light coloured Heliotrope is a hybrid of Heliotropium arborescens and may be called Golden Heliotrope, Golden Glow Heliotrope or Heliotrope ‘Aurea’. The parent species is originally from Peru and grows in a wide range of habitats, from forests to coastal land. It should be noted that all parts of the plant are toxic to both humans and other animals.

For more information on Heliotropes please see Heliotropium arborescens ‘Cherry Pie’

Growing Conditions

Heliotrope ‘Golden’ grows in full sun to part shade, but protection may be required for the harsh Australian sun in hot weather. Fertile open soil, with good drainage is required and constant moisture, but not dampness, is ideal. Heavy clay soil or damp, wet ground will result in poor performance. Trimming the plant regularly will help maintain shape and encourage new growth and flowers. Heliotropes may be propagated by seed or by cuttings taken in spring.

    Golden Heliotrope

    Being very fond of heliotrope but not having had any in the garden for some time I was glad to find not only a Golden Heliotrope but also a white and a Lord Roberts which I think is blue/purple. They have all been planted and appear to be growing and I am anxiously looking forward to see them all flowering! And enjoy their perfume.
