About This Species
Yellow archangel is a perennial garden plant usually seen in hanging baskets and as a ground cover. This plant prefers shady sites such as forested areas and grows in a dense mat that smothers native plants. It spreads by seed and plant fragments, and by animals and humans passing through the vegetation.
How to Identify
Yellow archangel has a square-sided stem that grows from 30 cm to 60 cm in height. Small, yellow flowers grow in a clump close to the stem. Leaves are hairy, oval to heart-shaped, with toothed edges, and are dark green with an outer silver lining.
