Tree Daisy - also known as Streamside Tree Daisy - is an evergreen, bushy shrub, and probably the most floriferous New Zealand Olearia species found along lowland streamsides. It has spear-shaped dark green leaves, and large panicles of daisy like white flowers with yellow centred flowers in spring.
