Brachyscome segmentosa ‘Starscope’ – Lord Howe Island Daisy

A larger Brachyscome cultivar, growing up to 0.5 metres high and wide. It forms a compact and rounded cushion and is a wonderful ground cover plant. It is long flowering, from spring to autumn, with masses of happy daisy flowers. They open a bright mauve and age to white, giving a lovely two toned effect which contrasts nicely with the dark green foliage. Likes a sunny spot for best flowering, but can also grow in part shade. An easy care plant that needs little except for a handful of slow release fertiliser in spring, some extra water in drought time. Can be pruned back by a third if needed. A great plant for courtyards, playgrounds and pots.
