Lanceleaf Coast Groundsel
Characteristics: Annual 20-60 cm
Seed per packet: Approx 100
An erect annual herb in the daisy family of Asteraceae that produce attractive bright yellow flowers from June to December.
Self-seeding and germinates readily.
Occurs naturally in the Eremaean and South-West Province of Western Australia in the Esperance Plains, Gascoyne, Geraldton Sandplains, Jarrah Forest, Murchison, Swan Coastal Plain, Warren and Yalgoo regions.
Prefers a well-drained soil in an open sunny position.
In temperate areas of Australia it is best to sow from first winter rains through to late winter.
If sowing directly into the ground sow on the surface and rake very lightly, it is not critical to cover all the seed. Seeds germinate at any time of the year when moisture is present with the main germinations occurring between March and June
If sowing in containers:
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.
