Yellow Dot Wedelia (Wedelia trilobata)
Wedelia grows rapidly in well drained soil and re-roots from stems laying on the ground. Good cover in shady areas where grass no longer grows, it will also grow fast in full sun. Bright yellow flowers are a nice contrast to the dark green foliage.
After dying back to the ground after a freeze, Wedelia will recover very quickly and return to it’s lush appearance. They require lots of water when young to help establish this blooming ground cover quickly. They will exaggerate thirst through dramatic wilting when too dry, often perking back up within fifteen minutes of receiving a drink.
