A low and spreading ground cover perennial, popular for its delicate look which belies its very hardy nature. It is long flowering for most of the year, with dainty pink and white daisy flowers. It has a dense habit which will deter weed growth, and will spill over embankments and pot edges. Drought tolerant, and as the common name indicates, is very suitable for coastal sites. Is good in most soil types, at its best in moist conditions. Frost tolerant.
It can be invasive, and can escape from gardens to colonise bushland areas. It produces copious amounts of seed which are easily dispersed.
