|Singapore Daisy, Sphagneticola trilobata, Wedelia lobata|
Found this plant/flower growing wildly at the beach in Negros. I didn't know the name until recently when I saw it as a ground-cover at a riverbank park. The park caretaker told me it's called Singapore Daisy, and it is considered a weed. A South American native, it is now common in the tropical and sub-tropical areas. Singapore Daisy is deliberately planted as roadside and embankment stabilizer. It forms dense infestations along undisturbed edges of rainforests and coastal areas.

For a weed, it's pretty!
We have a Scotch Broom in our yard that is considered a weed in SW USA.
It is planted here too. I didn't know the name. Thanks for the info.
A lovely yellow little useful plant! It was new for me!

Cute little weed with a fun name :)
It's pretty, this Singapore Daisy, and if it's a hardy weed, I wonder why I haven't seen it before.

Thank you for participating in Floral Friday Fotos!
I have never liked the tern "Weed" I just see them as pesky plants in need of attention. This one just happens to be more lovely than some.
There are so many wonderful weeds in nature! Sometimes I bring some of them and plant them in my garden! And sometimes I've got great results!
Thanks for sharing. And thanks for visiting and taking the time to comment;o)
Have a nice weekend****
