Brachyscome ‘Lemon Twist’ – Native Daisy

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.
