About Golden groundsel
Golden Groundsel is a rosette-forming perennial with several runner-like stolons terminated by similar rosettes. Slender flowering stems rise to 1 1/2 ft. above the rosettes of oval leaves. Flower clusters are few- to many-headed; the yellow flowers heads occuring on slender pedicels. Golden Groundsel brings color to shaded spots in the landscape.
Once established, it colonizes quickly and creates an effective, evergreen ground cover. It is often one of the earliest bloomers of the year. Sonki is a gregarious plant of the Western Ghats which makes a splash during its mass flowering with the advent of monsoons. It is seen on hill-slopes, old roofs and forks of trees.It is an erect branched annual herb.
