Goodenia ovata ‘Prostrate’

This is a very tough ground covering plant that features buttercup yellow flowers over an extended period in spring and summer and bright green fleshy leaves. It is great for spilling over walls or as a border or rockery plant that can spread over a reasonable area. Give it a light trim at the end of summer to tidy it up.
