I have had little luck with this plant.

So far I have lost six (planted as a part of a landscaping project)

The plant is available in three colours. Pink, Blue and White. In New Zealand where I live I have been told that Pink is the hardiest of the three.

It is (supposed to be) easy to propogate from cuttings I am trying at the moment.

It needs free draining soil. It prefers cool moist positions.

This Australian daisy-bush grows in fairly open forest. It is an attractive bush, covered in groups of white daisy-flowers in the late spring. They are fairly popular in cultivation, but I have not grown one. I did collect some seed last year for a revegetation project, but have not yet learned whether they grew successfully.
