Now it's a bronze carpet. I'd get those upright plants out of it, before bare sections are produced.

Next we can discuss how this differs from 'Mother Lode' (see recent post of that one).

'Mother Lode' and 'Golden Carpet' are only differend in Spring for maybe a month.
'Mother Lode' does have lemon yellow new growth and 'Golden Carpet' is a golden yellow at that moment.
'Mother Lode' orginated in the U.S. while 'Golden Carpet' derives from Germany.

Ken, Nice plant. I have Motherlode but this one you have is very interesting. Is there any way I might get a 10/15 cutting for rooting in a few weeks?
