Coastal Daisybush Overview

Olearia axillaris is a shrubby, branching, herbaceous species in the daisy family, Asteraceae (Asteraceae). It is commonly known by the names Coastal Daisybush and Wild Rosemary. Originating from Australia, this plant produces attractive silvery foliage and distinctive small, yellow-cream, daisy-like flowers. It is popular in cultivation, typically growing to around 2m in height. This species prefers full sun and well-draining soil, it cannot tolerate cold, wet conditions but can cope with strong winds and salty, poor quality soil. It may, therefore, be planted in exposed positions such as coastal environments.
