Shrub ragwort Overview

Brachyglottis is a genus containing around 35 evergreen climbers, shrubs or trees from the Asteraceae family. These plants are restricted in their distribution to New Zealand and Tasmania. Brachyglottis are grown for their daisy-like yellow flowers and pretty, leathery, silver-green foliage. Cultivated dwarf species would be well suited to a rock garden. Some of these plants are commonly known as Shrub Ragwort or Shrubby Ragwort and historically they were known as Senecio.
