Description

Brachycome genus (Swan river daisy). These low-growing annuals and evergreen perennials are attractive groundcover or rockery plants. Many of the perennials are mound-forming plants, spreading by underground runners and having finely divided, soft fern-like foliage. They will bear a profusion of daisy-like flowerheads in shades of blue, mauve, pink and white, with orange or brownish centres or yellow as in the hybrids.

Interest and use

Grown for the daisy-like flower heads. Ground cover or rockery. Suitable for coastal conditions.

Cultivation

They are fully hardy and will require sun with a sheltered position and rich well drained soil. You will need to pinch out the growing shoots of young plants to encourage a bushy habit.

Propagation

Propagation is by ripe seed sown under glass in spring or stem cuttings or by division in spring or autumn.
