Magic Carpet Yellow

Mecardonia is one of those plants that will not let you down. If it's tough and durable enough to use in high traffic areas between pavers you can bet on it in your annual displays for containers, window boxes, hanging baskets and landscape beds.

Magic Carpet has a semi-mounding habit that is loaded with brilliant yellow flowers season long. It will be very early to bloom in spring yet extremely heat tolerant in summer conditions. What more could you as for?
