Brachyscome 'Brasco Violet' is a compact perennial with tons of flowers from spring to summer and on to autumn, with violet-purple daisy flowers with a contrasting bright yellow centre. A great plant for containers and for flower gardens, it is an easy care plant that naturally grows into a neat mounded shape. Flowers best in full sun, but also grows in light shade. Some slow release fertiliser in spring ensures good flowering. Trim lightly if needed in autumn.
