Description

Common Name: Sneeze weed

A stunner for the sunny summer / autumn border. Definitely a favourite. The petals on these large daisy flowers are splashed with various shades of orange – Reminding me of a Van Gogh painting.

From late winter through spring the plants form a mound of tidy fresh green leaves. Plants send up tall flower stalks from the end of November. Buds start a rusty orange / red before the flowers open with their stunning range of colour. Flowers over a long period through to autumn.

A magnet for all kinds of pollinators especially honey bees and native admiral butterflies.

Will thrive in free draining soils and low fertility.
