Brachyscome iberidifolia – Swan River Daisy

A low growing annual daisy that provides a spectacular burst of colour through spring. Plant the seed in autumn and keep the plants growing through winter in warmer climates as this will bring a better display in spring. Trim off the spent flowers after the first spring flush to encourage repeat flowering in late spring and summer. Feed generously with a good fertiliser to get the plants reaching their full flowering potential.
