Plant details

This is a good ground cover plant for a wide range of sites around the garden, tolerating sun and light shade. Once established, plants even thrive in the very dry conditions found under trees or on a bank. The foliage, which is evergreen, attractively serrated and lobed, and resembles that of strawberries, builds up into dense, weed-smothering carpets. The flowers, in late spring and early summer, are single, bright yellow, and stand out well against the deep green foliage.
