This plant seems to have major weed potential. It is spreading profusely along a median strip in my town.

This is a beautiful evergreen shrub from South Africa. It has attractive, heath like foliage which is a green colour. Throughout spring this shrub is covered in masses of bright golden, scented, button flowers. Thrives in a full sun position in a well drained soil.Adds bright colour to the border, the pot or container or the rockery. Prune after flowering to keep the plant bushy. pokerboy.
