Native Hibiscus. An ever increasing interest in native hibiscus has led to the horticultural development of a number of new cultivars which rival the exotic types in beauty and flower size.
This is a superb ground covering native daisy that is the best of the yellow flowering cultivars of brachyscome available as it has an extended flowering season through the warmer months of the year. It is a perennial ground cover that will gradually radiate out to around half a metre in diameter and is ideal for rockeries, borders and containers and looks spectacular when contrasted with purple flowers such as scaevola (fan flower). It needs moderate amounts of water whilst it is establishing but after a few months it can cope with minimal water. Dead head the spent flowers in mid spring to keep the plant flowering through summer and autumn.
