Yellow Dot, scientifically known as Wedelia trilobata or Sphagneticola trilobata, is a fast-growing, perennial ground cover native to Central America. It is widely used in landscaping for its vibrant yellow flowers and its ability to quickly cover large areas.

One of the most striking features of Yellow Dot is its bright yellow, daisy-like flowers. These blooms appear throughout the year, peaking in the warmer months, and provide a continuous display of color. The cheerful yellow flowers contrast beautifully with the plant's lush green foliage, making it a visually appealing addition to any garden.

The foliage of Yellow Dot consists of small, glossy, dark green leaves that form a dense, mat-like covering. This dense growth habit makes it an effective ground cover, capable of suppressing weeds and stabilizing soil on slopes or in areas prone to erosion.

Yellow Dot is particularly well-suited for tropical and subtropical climates and thrives in a variety of soil types, provided they are well-draining. It's commonly used in borders, rock gardens, and as an underplanting for larger shrubs or trees. It can also be used in containers, where it will spill over the edges attractively.

This plant prefers full sun to partial shade and is relatively drought-tolerant once established. However, it requires regular watering, especially during dry periods. Yellow Dot is known for its aggressive growth and can spread beyond its intended area, so it may require regular pruning or edging to keep it contained.

Overall, Yellow Dot is appreciated for its rapid growth, vibrant flowers, and ease of care. Its ability to provide year-round color and cover bare spots quickly makes it a popular choice for gardeners and landscapers looking to add a splash of color and vitality to their outdoor spaces.
