Scientific Name : Wedelia trilobata
Common name : Creeping Daisy, Yellow dots,
Excellent ground cover in warm climates. Especially good for soil retention and erosion control. Very attractive because of nearly constant and prolific blooming. It may be mowed to keep low and manicured.
The plant has use in traditional medicine: crushed leaves are used as a poultice; tea is given to alleviate symptoms of colds and flu; and it is used in combination with other herbs to clear the placenta after birth.
Farm animals have aborted fetuses after grazing on Wedelia.
