This native plant gets its common name from a belief that it grows in spots where the rocks are rich in gold. We don't know if it works in reverse - plant it and you'll strike a nugget - but it's worth a go, we reckon! Would look great mingled with flowering sages, and white whisker flowers, for masses of flower colour.
