‘Kingwood Gold’ jewels-of-Opar (Talinum paniculatum), also known as fameflower, produces fleshy, bright yellow leaves and airy sprays of small pink flowers that turn into coppery, bead-like seedpods. In my Pennsylvania garden, it regularly reaches 1 to 2 feet tall, but it can get twice as large in other areas, apparently. It looks great along a path, at the front of a border, or in a container. Be aware that it is likely to self-sow. Full sun to light shade. Annual (perennial in Zones 9 to 11).
This strain is often sold under the name ‘Kingswood Gold’, but that spelling is incorrect, as it was discovered at the Kingwood Center Gardens in Mansfield, OH.
Harvested in September and October 2020. At least 25 seeds.
