Xerochrysum viscosum – Sticky Everlasting Daisy

An attractive long flowering everlasting daisy with interesting sticky foliage, which can trap small insects. A good hardy plant for frost and drought areas, but also good for more humid areas. Easily grown in most well drained soils , best in full sun. It flowers from spring through summer with spot flowering in autumn. Prune back after flowering to stimulate new flowering shoots and to maintain bushiness. Good for massed planting. The flower heads are great cut flowers and can be dried for long lasting colourful blooms.

Naturally grows in south east Australia from Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, ACT and Tasmania, in open woodland and in disturbed areas such as roadsides.
