A low growing perennial plant that produces a cluster of bright white everlasting daisy flowers with golden yellow centres from spring through to autumn. The narrow foliage is a silvery green which contrasts beautifully with the flowers and is attractive in its own right.
Likes a sunny position in moist but well drained soils. A tidy up of the foliage and finished flowers is all the attention this plant needs, making it suitable for low maintenance gardens. Great for massed drift plantings, dotted amongst other plants, as a border, and can also be grown in containers. Frost tolerant. The papery blooms can be dried and will keep their colour for many years, pick in bud and hang upside down in an airy place. They can also be used fresh for floral work.

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.
