Poached egg plant ( Lim­nan­thes dou­glasii)

Garden News (UK) - - About Now -

Another Amer­i­can an­nual, this forms low mats of ferny leaves and in spring erupts into car­pets of white-edged, bright yel­low flow­ers. The glossy petals make the flow­ers es­pe­cially pop­u­lar with honey bees and it flow­ers for sev­eral months. The pollen-rich flow­ers also at­tract hov­er­flies, po­ten­tial preda­tors of green­fly. Height: 15cm (6in).
