Xerochrysum ‘Sundaze Flame’ – Everlasting Daisy

A low growing soft-wooded perennial with dark green leaves and yellow and orange everlasting flowers that attract butterflies. Great rockery, border or pot plant. Good heat tolerant plant, performs best in full sun but will tolerate light shade. Dry soil conditions will reduce the flowering. No need to deadhead this variety, adding to the low maintenance factor. Feed through the flowering season with a good native fertilizer, being sure to water after applying to prevent leaf burn. Dry the flowers by picking in bud. Once dried, they can keep their colour and last for years.
