Chrysocephalum baxteri – Fringed Everlasting

A low growing perennial plant that produces a cluster of bright white everlasting daisy flowers with golden yellow centres from spring through to autumn. The narrow foliage is a silvery green which contrasts beautifully with the flowers and is attractive in its own right.

Likes a sunny position in moist but well drained soils. A tidy up of the foliage and finished flowers is all the attention this plant needs, making it suitable for low maintenance gardens. Great for massed drift plantings, dotted amongst other plants, as a border, and can also be grown in containers. Frost tolerant. The papery blooms can be dried and will keep their colour for many years, pick in bud and hang upside down in an airy place. They can also be used fresh for floral work.
