This plant is a low maintainance, low growing Australian native with masses of daisy flowers with blue petals and yellow centres (often) along with fresh green foliage. Will tolerate short periods of dryness. Great for rockeries, hanging baskets, mass plantings and tubs. A good Australian native plant. pokerboy.
