Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral kennedyh On Jul 10, 2003, kennedyh from Churchill, Victoria
Australia (Zone 10a) wrote:

This is a large shrub or small tree of the daisy family. The flowers are large clusters of groundsel-like flowers, yellow, but with no ray florets (no petals). The leaves are attractive, long green leaves with a soft white, blanket-like undersurface. It is a common shrub of the wetter forests in South-Eastern Australia. We have tried with little success to grow then from seed, but I recently acquired a plant and have it well established in my garden. It is already nearly 2 metres tall after only 1 year in the ground, but has not flowered yet.
