The landscape lights up in the fall when low, mounding plants whose lithe stems have a tendency to trail are blanketed by bright-yellow, fluffy, buttonlike little blooms. Plant at the front of the border, along the tops of retaining walls, or at containers’ edges for a delightfully colorful, late-season floral display.
