A low growing soft-wooded perennial with small dark green leaves and lemon-yellow everlasting flowers that attract butterflies. Great rockery, border or pot plant. Good heat tolerant plant, performs best in full sun but will tolerate light shade. Feed with a good native fertiliser through the warm months to encourage more flowering, and be sure to water in after applying fertilizer to avoid leaf burn. Dry soil conditions will reduce the flowering. To preserve the flowers, pick while they are in bud, dried flowers will last for years and keep their colour.

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.
