What is Pallenis
Gold Coin (scientific name: Pallenis maritima) is a dwarf evergreen germplasm in the family Asteraceae, native to Greece and other western Mediterranean countries. In spring and summer, it produces yellow-headed flowers in a monocotyledonous inflorescence extending from the tip of the flower stem.
The flowers are yellow in color, both lingual and tubular. It is used for ground covers and rock gardens because of its low height. It is vulnerable to the sweltering heat of summer.
The genus name "Pallenis" is derived from the Greek temple of Athena "Pallenis" where it originated, and the species name "maritimum" means "of the coast".
