Goodenia macmillanii

An attractive Goodenia, notable for the pink-mauve flowers on a medium sized plant to half a metre tall. Tends to be short lived, but worth growing. Best in a sandy loam, but is adaptable to other soils if well drained.  Frost tender when small, once established it can take some frost. Occurs naturally in a small range in inland Victoria.
