It is an evergreen trailing plant with loose terminal clusters of bright yellow, saucer-shaped flowers. Though the individual blooms are short-lived from late spring, the plant produces a mass of flowers through the summer and, as an evergreen shrub, plenty of interest during winter with green foliage. It needs a dry, sunny place, like a south-facing rockery or meadow, thriving in poor soil conditions and sandy soil. This is a good nectar source for bees and there are several species of small beetle that feed on the foliage. Typically this plant type grows anywhere between 5cm up to 1 feet tall and is perfect for rock gardens and rockery for help with erosion control, or a sunny border.
