Xerochrysum ‘Diamond Head’ – Everlasting Daisy

Diamond Head has proven itself over many years to be a great garden performer. A low growing soft-wooded perennial with small dark green leaves and yellow everlasting flowers, it has a naturally good growth habit. Makes a great rockery, border and pot plant. Good heat tolerant plant, performs best in full sun but will tolerate light shade. Dry soil conditions will reduce the flowering. Fertilise lightly through the warm months. To preserve the flowers, pick before they open and hang upside down to dry.
