Why is Aaralia cordata Sun King the Perennial Plant of the year for 2020?

Aralia cordata Sun King named the 2020 Perennial Plant of the Year by The Perennial Plant Association. Here are the top reasons why this perennial should be in your garden:

Sun King has golden yellow foliage and is more compact than the traditional Japanese Spikenard. For best color and performance, situate this variety in morning sun of filtered shade. In heavy shade the plant will appear more chartreuse green. Be aware, too much sun may cause the leaves to burn.

In mid to late summer, racemes of tiny white flowers are produced followed by deep purplish black, inedible berries. The flowers attract honeybees and other pollinators.
