This is a superb ground covering native daisy that is one of the best of the yellow flowering cultivars of brachyscome. It has an extended flowering season through the warmer months of the year. It is a perennial ground cover that will gradually radiate out to around half a metre in diameter and is ideal for rockeries, borders and containers and looks spectacular when contrasted with purple flowers such as scaevola (fan flower). It needs moderate amounts of water whilst it is establishing but is dry tolerant once established.

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.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
