Singapore daisy, creeping ox-eye

Sphagneticola trilobata

Description:

Sphagneticola trilobata has a very wide ecological tolerance range, and seems to be equally suited to dry and moist sites. Although it seems to prefer and do best in sunny sites, it survives very well in shady sites. It grows well on almost all soil types, including bare limestone and nutrient poor sandy beaches and swampy or waterlogged soils. It is tolerant to inundation and high levels of salinity. A member of the Asteraceae (sunflower) family, it is native to the Neotropics and is widespread as an invasive species in the Pacific.

Habitat:

Planted as an ornamental flowerbed cover in a semi-urban environment of houses, yards & gardens and patches of remnant forest. This is in the equatorial tropics of northern New Guinea.
