The snow white flowers over an extended period on a very compact mounding growth habit are the key features of this lovely native daisy. Great for rockeries, pots and borders. It needs no other maintenance than a light trim if it starts to look untidy. In hot or windy weather it may need some extra water, and feed with a good native fertilizer in spring.

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.
