The extraordinary flowers of this plant are its most striking feature. Whilst the common name portrays it as a daisy, this plant in fact belongs to the gum tree family, Myrtaceae. It is a low growing shrub that has proven to be difficult to cultivate. It is best grown in a pot in the garden as its wispy habit can get crowded out in a rampant garden bed. It is sometimes grafted onto a tougher rootstock to try and improve its growing performance. Prune it straight after flowering and use a freely draining potting mix.
