Description:
Brachyscome is one of Australia’s favourite native daisies due to their versatility and beauty. Brachyscome are used primarily as a colourful ground cover or as a container plant. Brachyscome are short-lived perennials, meaning they will repeat flower for up to three years as a rule. In that time, they will add great value to the garden, not only interms of their colourful display, but their assistance in erosion control and weed suppression. B. Pacific Reef has compact, deep green scalloped foliage that forms a base to the brilliant, bright musk-coloured flowers with a yellow centre. Grows approx 15cm high with a 40cm spread.

Cultural Notes: Brachyscome favour free-draining soil but are fairly tolerant of various soil types as they’re not particularly deep-rooted. They love full sun but can tolerate some shade, however, they won’t enjoy prolonged high humidity, such as in the tropics. Brachyscome are normally planted in multiples, so check the plant label to work out planting intervals. Once established in a garden, Brachyscome usually don’t need supplementary watering above that of natural rainfall. Of course, water the plants during extended dry spells.
