Gardeners' Notes:

This plant does not seem to be quite as hardy as E. pectinatus and survives two or three winters and then gets killed in most areas of Cornwall, except the mildest.

I would plant Euryops pectinatus -- it will survive most winters, and has the same flowers and better foliage!

This plant has done great out by my mailbox where it is too far to drag the hose to water. It blooms all summer. Just a little deadheading when I check the mail and it keeps its color all the long hot summer!

I have admired this plant because it is evergreen and blooms year round. One problem--in the heat of the summer the leaves dry up along the stem except at the tips. I can't figure out if it needs more water or less water. Or is it the heat doing it. Two of my neighbors have had the same problem

This plant is also known as: African Bush Daisy, Bush Daisy, Yellow Bush Daisy, Paris Daisy and Gamolepis chrysanthemoides.

Mine has been growing for 2 years in one of the driest, hottest places in my yard in full sun. It has been blooming all summer with no sign of slowing down - I love it! The flowers are about 1.5" across and the foilage is evergreen here in zone 9.

Definately a great xeriscape plant for Florida or other hot weather, full sun gardens!
