This small, upright shrub has small, fuzzy, grey-green leaves, and is covered with masses of tiny, white, daisy-like blooms in early spring-summer. It can tolerate some drought if positioned in light shade, but it's happiest in regularly-watered, free-draining soil, and in full sun. To avoid a bare, leggy base, prune regularly and lightly when young, and always after blooming. Don't cut into old wood at the base once mature; it is not likely to resprout. This little beauty is commonly found in eastern New South Wales, Victoria, and Tasmania.

Mature size is dependent on conditions: 1-6 feet T x W

Minimum temperature: 10° F
