ยป Tough, adaptable, evergreen plant. The low-growing habit makes this an excellent groundcover. Heart-shaped leaves set off the bright yellow flowers that appear over a long period in Spring to Summer. Attracts insect-eating birds to the garden. Excellent groundcover for difficult areas. Well suited to slopes and embankments. Good groundcover under trees. Suited to most well-drained soils. Tolerant of difficult, dry or wet sites, and heavy shade. Trim back after flowering to maintain a dense foliage cover. Mulch well to retain soil moisture and suppress weeds. Fertilize with a low-phospherous, slow-release fertilizer.
