Hey everyone. I was wondering if anyone could identify this ground cover. I know it's deciduous, has a woody stem and produces clusters of small yellow flowers each spring. -Thanks

Hi Ziroth,

It's chrysanthemum pacificum

One more question,

If I were to spray the bermuda grass coming through the chrysanthemum with 20% vinegar after the chrysanthemum has gone "dormant" for the fall, will it harm the roots of the ground cover? -Thanks

I guess it depends on HOW you spray. If there is any overspray or saturation of the ground where the vinegar would be absorbed, then you could put your groundcover at risk. Maybe you could dig up sections, remove the groundcover and keep it safe on a tarp with the roots and earth covered for a couple of days, spray the grass and then replant.
