Wedelia (Wedelia trilobata), native to Central America and Mexico, is an excellent ground cover, perfect for warm climates. It can tolerate full sun to partial shade, and requires regular water. It also has colorful flowers - bright yellow and orange - making it an ideal choice for adding some cheer to a garden.
Wedelia has a fast growth rate and can become quite invasive. If you live in USDA Zone 8-11 and don't have a very large garden or green space, it's best to grow it in a pot. In winter, when the climate is cold, the plant will need some protection from frost. Make sure to also keep it in a spot that receives some sunlight and lots of moisture.
Wedelia does not require a lot of pruning or deadheading. In fact, it is best left to its own devices and pruned only if it starts to encroach on other plants.
Overall, Wedelia is a great choice for adding some vibrant color to a garden. It's a low-maintenance plant and won't require a lot of upkeep. Just make sure to give it enough sunlight, water regularly and provide good drainage. If you live in a colder climate, you may need to be more vigilant to protect it from frost, but with the right care and attention, it can thrive.
