That's gold! A Geranium

A Gold leaf Geranium (Pelargonium x hortorum)
About ten years ago ,I bought a lot of Geraniums from Marjorie Edward's Nursery Pelargonium Place at Golden Square in Victoria. This is one of them and it is a real star performer especially in the shade. It never gets any rust or disease problems and really brightens up the garden in dull spots. If grown in the sun it takes on bright red markings on the leaf as per photo below.

If it is grown with a bit of maroon foliage it makes a really loud combination!

 Growing with Iresine herbstii
2017 update: I still grow this golden geranium and offer it for sale on request.
