Goodenia ovata ‘Gold Cover’

A very adaptable and low maintenance ground covering plant that features lush green foliage and massed, showy golden yellow flowers throughout the warmer months. It tolerates drought conditions. Uses include banks, retaining walls, ground covering and container planting for patios and courtyards. A handful of slow release fertiliser in spring will ensure good growth. Prune once in a while to encourage even more dense growth. Can be used under shrubs and trees, and as a quick filler plant. Can take light frost.
