Flowering ground covers combine beauty with function, adding color on the landscape
while preventing soil erosion and weeds.
This is a nice composition of a patch in a landscape, a gray rock
surrounded by yellow-flowered green creeping plants.
They are actually short stemmed single petalled yellow flowers, and they act as ground covers. Covering the ground to alleviate soil erosion during heavy rains or during dry season winds can be a difficult choice to do. Most often landscape gardeners just settle with green grass, and there are more choices for that alternative. Choosing flowering ground covers need more careful planning. Efficiency, beauty, conformation
with other plants in the landscape, cost and ease in maintenance can be some basic
things to consider at the time of selection.
This is an undulating area, and definitely the ground needs living covers to protect it from erosion caused by rain or wind. It is the landscape of a small hotel here outside its swimming pool and playground area. This is perennial peanut; Arachis repens or Arachis glabrata. The first is stoloniferous while the second is rhizomatous in plant habit spread.
Maybe the flowers will look more beautiful with a macro lens, but i don't have that, so hopefully this suffice for my purpose. Thank you.
