Native grasses and friends. An exciting thing is happening in the world of Australian plants. Wild species that have tantalised gardeners in the past are now being improved to create a diverse palette of new varieties that offer all kinds of advantages. In particular, the necessity for water-wise, low maintenance gardens has inspired interest in plants that can be used as ground covers that will not only suppress weeds and erosion but also look fantastic.

Brachyscome 'Mauve Delight' is a proven groundcover performer over a number of years, and is great for low maintenance plantings. This is one of the best mauve brachyscome, thanks to its long flowering time, compact suckering growth habit and nice divided foliage. The mauve flowers have beautiful contrasting yellow centres, and are massed over the plant nearly all year round. After flowering flushes, it is good to tip prune the plant to keep it compact. A sweet little plant for rockeries, pots and borders. Feed in spring with a good slow release fertiliser.
