Xerochrysum bracteatum ‘Lucky Penny’ – Everlasting Daisy

The compact, low growing form of this everlasting daisy, along with its very long flowering period are the key features of this showy, butterfly attracting native plant. It makes an outstanding pot plant for small gardens and courtyards or can be used as a flowering border for larger areas. Be sure to remove the spent flower heads to keep the blooms coming and give it a feed in spring and at the beginning of autumn to get it to reach its full flowering potential. Introduced by Zanthorrea Nursery from Perth, Western Australia.
