A compact small shrub that has attractive silvery leaves and masses of white everlasting daisy flowers in early to mid-spring that persist on the plant for several months. Trim back behind the spent flowers in late spring to rejuvenate the plant, which will improve the flowering the next year. A good feature plant or container plant, also good for cut flowers. To preserve the flowers, pick in bud. Hang to dry, and they will keep their colour and last for years, and can be used in dried arrangements.

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.
