A lovely Australian native perennial daisy that forms a spreading evergreen mound of soft green foliage and has violet-blue flowers through the warmer months, peaking in spring and autumn. Great for mass planting, rockeries and containers. A very easy care plant, a light trim if it becomes untidy is all that is needed. Best flowering is in a sunny position, watering if the soil is dry for some time, fertilise in spring and early autumn. It is frost tolerant and will grow in sandy to clay loam soils. Grows around 15cm tall x 1m wide.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
