Low growing annual species with flower heads that occur singly at the ends of the stems up to 40 mm in diameter with yellow centres surrounded by rosy pink bracts. Flowering occurs from June to October in its native range.
Great dried flower.
Adaptable to most garden soils but prefers a well-drained average to sandy soil in a sunny position.
Although seed can be sown most of the year in Australia seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn, avoid the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 18-22°C
General note: Seeds of many natives are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Do not be too hasty to discard seed that does not germinate, seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination to occur. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they were discarded.
