    Golden Breath of Heaven has tiny pale pink flowers with a light fragrance that may have inspired the Breath of Heaven common name. The attractive flowers bloom in abundance in winter to spring and may bloom again in fall but it is the brilliant foliage that wins the gold prize in the garden for best in show.

    Coleonema pulchellum 'Sunset Gold' is a very popular, compact cultivar that was discovered in an Australian garden but its origins are from South Africa. This shrub may look delicate but it is long lived, adaptable, trouble free, and tolerates coastal conditions.

    This garden gem dazzles with its brilliant citrine colored foliage. The fragrant leaves and fine texture make Sunset Gold Coleonema a treasure in the garden. Plant Golden Breath of Heaven for its beauty and drama and sit back and enjoy this low maintenance shrub which is sure to sparkle in any landscape.

    Plant Care

    Plant your Sunset Gold Coleonema in lean, well-draining, sandy soil in a location that is protected from the strong winds.

    Plant in full sun along the coast. In hotter, arid climates, light afternoon shade may prevent sun scorch on the leaves. Foliage color is affected by the intensity of sunlight. Partial shade is tolerated but the leaves may take on a greenish-yellow hue.

    Water regularly to establish a strong root system, frequency can be cut back once established. Water when the top 2 inches of soil is dry. Coleonema pulchellum ‘Sunset Gold’ may have some drought tolerance but it looks best with regular water.

    Apply an all purpose fertilizer like Gardner & Bloome 4-4-4 Organic All Purpose Fertilizer in the spring.

    Prune after flowering for desired size and shape. This very popular cultivar grows more compact than the species and has a low, flat-topped bush appearance that works well in formal gardens.

    Coleonema pulchellum 'Sunset Gold' is sometimes referred to as Diosma ‘Sunset Gold’. Winter hardy to 20ºF.
