Karensusan63's Garden


Genus: Brachyglottis.

Species: Brachyglottis 'Walberton's Silver Dormouse'.

This is under the apple tree n the front garden. A hardy evergreen shrub with lovely silver foliage, which is particularly bright on the underside. Free flowering with golden daisy flowers in summer. Great in borders, making effective ground cover. Likes sun or light shade in any reasonable well-drained soil. 90cmX1.2m.

I expect t can be pruned, but so far I haven't needed to. generally speaking, flowering shrubs are best pruned immediately after flowering.
