Yellow Monopsis Overview

The riot of bright yellow flowers covering this trailing groundcover makes it an absolute must for colour in the garden in summer. The pretty flowers resemble little faces peering up at you. The red-bronze tinged green stems are attractive even when not in flower, and look lovely spilling over the edges of hanging baskets, wall pots and patio tubs.
