Wedelia, Sphagneticola Trilobata – Plant
- Reviews (1)
Wedelia is a flowering plant genus in the sunflower family. Wedelia is a plant that has some very mixed reviews, and rightly so. While praised by some for its small, bright yellow flowers and ability to prevent erosion, it is also reviled by others for its aggressive spreading tendencies. It is a mat forming perennial herb with rounded stems. People like wedelia because of its beautiful flowers and its fast growth habit. Plant creeps and roots at nodes, making a dense ground cover. Grows best in moist, well-drained, fertile soil, but does fine in poor soil as well. Quite adaptable in tropical climates. Wedelia is very good for soil retention and erosion control. Plantings are very attractive with bright yellow flowers all year round. Wedelia plant care is extremely low maintenance. It will grow and thrive almost anywhere as long as the weather is warm enough. The plant is extremely tough and can handle pruning almost down to the ground.
