Comments: This is an excellent ground cover for the cooler regions of the country. Produces rich green, strawberry-like foliage arranged in rosettes and bright yellow flowers in late spring through early summer. When well established will form a thick mat of foliage. Spreads by stolons and rhizomes. No major plant pests.
