This is the smallest and least common of the daisy-bushes in this area. It grows as understorey in the forests. Its flowers are untidy, having just 2 or 3 ray florets in each head, but they are pure white and the overall effect is quite attractive. The leaves are dark green and toothed(silky underneath) and a little like miniature oak leaves. I have unsuccessfully attempted to grow this from seed, but intend to try again when I get the chance.
