Neutral Weezingreens On Nov 24, 2002, Weezingreens from Seward, AK (Zone 3b) wrote:

Yellow lobelia is a eye-catching evergreen groundcover that is perennial in warm climates. It is also used as an annual trailing basket plant. The small dark green succulent leaves are narrow and serrated. Its traveling branches root as they go, forming a low-growing mat.

The golden yellow flowers that rise slightly above the foliage resemble lobelia blooms. This plant is native to the wet alpine areas of South Africa, but is reported to be hardy to at least 30F and will survive with minimal watering.
