Commonly known as everlasting daisy or yellow buttons for its cute clusters of flowers that bloom throughout the year. This evergreen perennial is an Australia native and noted as an "Aussie Winner" for being particularly hardy, low maintenance, and drought tolerant in Mediterranean climates. Forms a clumping ground cover that is also stunning as a mass planted border. The stems and underside of foliage are silvery, while the topside of the leaves are a nice grey-green. Happy in full sun and spreads up to 30 inches wide.
