Coronidium elatum ‘Sunny Side Up’ – Everlasting Daisy

A compact small shrub that has attractive silvery leaves and masses of white everlasting daisy flowers in early to mid-spring that persist on the plant for several months. Trim back behind the spent flowers in late spring to rejuvenate the plant, which will improve the flowering the next year. A good feature plant or container plant, also good for cut flowers. To preserve the flowers, pick in bud. Hang to dry, and they will keep their colour and last for years, and can be used in dried arrangements.
