Small bushy shrub with small silver-green leaves

Sorry, no images to display

This evergreen shrub is very common in coastal areas especially sand dunes and has an attractive silver-grey appearance with its distinctive silver-green leaves with fine silver hair beneath. Flowers appear from July to August in the form of clusters of tiny cream daisy (wheel-shaped) flowers followed by down-covered seed heads. The fruits are small, dry, indehiscent one-seeded fruit with a thin wall. The seeds are dispersed by the wind. The tiny daisy seeds germinate and establish themselves easily on bare soils and in an overgrazed pasture.

It is fast growing and reaches a height of up to 2m tall. It prefers a sunny location but can tolerate frosts.
