Brachyscome ‘Pacific Tide’ – Native Daisy

 

A compact mounding daisy that does not sucker, very free flowering for most of the year. Mauve flowers that fade to white are the feature of this tough and easy care plant. Great for rockeries and borders, lovely in pots alone or as a mixed pot to bring some colour. Can take some frost, mild acid to alkaline soils, flowers best in a sunny spot. Feed in spring and again in summer for best performance.
