Chrysocephalum apiculatum ‘Desert Orange’ – Everlasting Daisy

An easy care and colourful groundcovering perennial daisy, with gorgeous grey green foliage and golden orange flower clusters in spring and summer. It grows to around half a metre wide and will cascade over banks and pots. It loves a sunny spot in well drained soil. Give it some native fertiliser in spring. It can be cut back hard after flowering and it will regrow beautifully.
