Calyptocarpus vialis (Horseherb)
Also known as Straggler daisy or Horse herb.
Horseherb is a lovely low growing ground cover that spreads rapidly under favorable conditions. It is adaptable, and even though it does best in dry part to full shade, it adapts to part and full sun, but the sunnier the exposure, the more water it will need. Horseherb can tolerate light foot traffic and can be mowed. It produces small bright yellow flowers when in bloom and attracts butterflies such as skippers and sulfurs.
