Brachyclotis Greyii


Brachyclotis Greyii (Senecio Greyii) is a spreading shrub, especially suitable for a hot, sunny place. It has furry new leaves, which mature to a glossy green shade on their upper side though they remain white and hairy beneath. The leaves have subtle crimped edges, a most attractive feature. There are bright yellow daisy flowerheads in the summer.



Plant in well drained soil. Full sun / partial shade, Hardy.
