Fabulous for native gardens, container planting, beds, borders, coastal areas and rockeries. Very low maintenance plants tolerant of poor soil and drought.

Makes a fantastic cut, pressed or dried flower lasting forever.

Great for attracting native bees, birds and beneficial insects. Also known as 'Paper Daisy' or 'Strawflower'.

This plant seeds freely in the garden but is not invasive and may be treated as an annual.
