An attractive and colourful medium-sized shrub growing up to 1.5 m with bright-yellow daisy-like flowers and soft grey to green leaves. Flowering nearly all year round, peaking in springtime. It is an excellent garden plant, as it is very versatile, easy to grow and is fairly low maintenance. Responds well to pruning in autumn or winter and resprouts vigorously. This colorful garden plant is also water-wise and therefore great choice for xeriscaping.
Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter
Harvest seeds at the end of summer. Bag seedheads to capture ripening seed. Collect the pod when the flowers fade and allow it to dry out or allow the pods to dry on the plant and then break them open to collect seeds. Seeds don't store well, so sow them as soon as possible.
Sow seeds in Spring or Autumn, 1.5 times deeper than the size of the seed. Germination takes 2-3 weeks.
Root softwood cuttings in late spring and semi-hardwood cuttings during summer.
The bright, daisy-like flowers are 5 cm wide and bloom nearly all year round with the main display in spring.
