Xerochrysum papillosum ‘Linda’s Pink’ – Everlasting Daisy

A lovely pink form of  Xerochrysum papillosum which normally has all white flowers and naturally grows in southern Victoria and Tasmania. A hardy and adaptable perennial plant and makes a wonderful garden plant. It will flower from late spring through to summer, with peak flowering in spring- cut back old flowers to encourage a new flush. 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.

This plant was originally grown and selected by Plants Of Tasmania Nursery. Xerochrysum papillosum is critically endangered in the wild.
