This is the first year that I have planted Gold Dust. It is a drought-resistant, reliable, happy bloomer of pretty bright yellow tiny flowers. It trails beautifully and is a great filler for sunny beds where you need ground cover. The foliage is a very pretty bright green and quite delicate. I planted it with Blue My Mind, and they work beautiful together.

Mecardonia 'GoldDust' has bright, nemesia-like flowers from spring until frost. It has small green leaves that are covered in flowers and has an excellent trailing habit. A perfect plant for hanging baskets and containers, not only for its beauty, but also for its heat tolerance.

Great plant. Used 2 around 1 small lantana in a 10 in urn and it encircled the urn and looked nice all summer. Still going strong Oct 2nd. Would highly recommend as a short filler.
