The Q&A Archives: Ground Covering

Question: I was in Hawaii recently and liked a ground covering that had dark leaves and a small bright yellow flower. Do you know the name of it, do you carry it or where can I find it other than in Hawaii?

Answer: I'm just guessing here, but based upon description and where it was growing, it could be Lysimachia nummularia. This plant will thrive in a sunny spot in your growing region. You can purchase seeds for this groundcover from Thompson & Morgan, PO Box 1308, Jackson, NJ 08527-0308.
