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.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
