Brachyscome multifida


The pretty hybrids of this groundcover daisy are the result of years of development in native plant breeding. Brachyscomes flower almost all year above dense but fine foliage and spread up to a metre or so. Colours include lavender lilac, blue, pink and white. Give them a sunny spot with fertile, well-drained soil and keep them well watered in the summer. Deadhead spent flowers to encourage additional bloom. This daisy is attractive to bees, butterflies and birds. 'City Lights' (pictured) has large, soft-mauve flowers that fade to white, and suits gardens , pots and hanging baskets.
