Diamond Head has proven itself over many years to be a great garden performer. A low growing soft-wooded perennial with small dark green leaves and yellow everlasting flowers, it has a naturally good growth habit. Makes a great rockery, border and pot plant. Good heat tolerant plant, performs best in full sun but will tolerate light shade. Dry soil conditions will reduce the flowering. Fertilise lightly through the warm months. To preserve the flowers, pick before they open and hang upside down to dry.

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.
