From seed self-seeds

We, ahem, introduced this one into our garden. It came in a six-pack, from a local native plant sale. And sure enough, it was a nice little plant - soft-hairy low-growing leaves with orange dandelion-like flowers - great! Except, it seeds everywhere, and wants to creep by roots too... So we finally decided that it is no longer welcome in our garden beds - but by now, it has colonized our lawn as well. At least it's pretty :-)

This is a weed in our garden
