I bought 2 of these.. they were marked Gold.. something or another. I'm trying to make a map of my yard so I know what's where.

Here's the "green" (non-dead) version from this past May. I have them outlined in red.

But if you bought them at a big box store, keep them separate for several years. Plants from such sources carry a very high rate of infection with HVX.
