MALEPHORA

Groundcover plants from South Africa. Dense, smooth, 1–1 3/4-in.-long fleshy leaves are highly resistant to heat, wind, exhaust fumes, and fire. Widely used for both streetside and freeway plantings. Plants bloom over a long season, but their daisy-like flowers are scattered rather than in sheets. Attractive to bees.

Malephora luteola

Grows to 1 ft. high and 6 ft. wide, with bright green foliage. Inch-wide yellow flowers bloom during most of the year. More vigorous than M. crocea.
