A friend recently gave me this plant and said she has had it for years in southern Middle Tennessee. It is a perennial ground cover with a tiny yellow flower that blooms in the spring (April-May). The blooms stand on stalks that shoot up about 8 to 10 inches tall. She said the foliage will stay green all through the summer. Can anyone identify it?
