Wonderful, 'can't do without' plant. Aways blooming in Spring-Summer, perennial in Zone 7, cushiony and soft. Fills in to the size of its area. If it's not blooming, I add more water. I like to plant this along paths repetitively to draw you along.

This plant flowers 365 days of the year, in frost free conditions, and is a short lived perrenial. I planted some 3 years ago, only one has died. They are easy to grow from seed and have attractive, ground smothering foliage as well as the (usually) mauve flowers. Like almost all West Australian plants they need good drainage. Give them that and they are trouble free.An occasional clip to keep them low growing will improve them and the flowering will also benefit.

This plant just stopped blooming for some reason. It is in a mixed pot that is in the sun/part sun. It is a fairy new plant and is growing like crazy but just totally stopped blooming. I had some last year and it did just fine in this spot. Does anyone have any ideas or tips. Thanks!

Beautiful light yellow blossoms. Intermitent blooming. Next season I'll shear after first wave of bloom to promote greater flowering. Great for underplanting.

Pure enchantment to grow. A multitude of small, daisy-like flowers of blue, purple, rose and white are borne above and among the feathery, fern-like leaves of this annual in spring, summer and early autumn. Annual from Australia. Start seeds under glass in February or March. Pinch out tips of young plants to encourage bushiness. Ideal for sunny edges, cut flowers, containers, or rockeries, the dark-centers of the flowers are good accents for floral arrangements. Very effective in mass plantings in borders, planters and window boxes. Does not do well in heavy and infertile soil; shelter from the wind, deadhead to promote further blooms. This is not a particularly long-blooming plant so successive sowings every three weeks will insure continuous blooms. Fall sown seeds will bloom in spring in a greenhouse. Lightly clip if your plant thins in summer.

Blooms best in cool weather. Beautiful cascading from window boxes. Occasional botrytris and aphids, but mostly pest-free.
