Golden Groundsel, Packera obovata.
This lovely perennial groundcover forms a rosette of oval leaves in early Winter and blooms in late Winter and into early Spring.
It can colonize a large area and prefers moist shade or semi-shade remaining green most of the year.
The bloom stalk is about twelve inches tall topped with a cluster of yellow daisy like flowers that announce the arrival of Spring and provide early nectar for butterflies.
This is a very charming plant that deserves a special place in the landscape.
