Booyong Conservation RetreatCabin GardenGardening - Natives

Break of Day

Despite several losses in my native garden beds, I have persisted and am so very excited when a new plant flourishes and survives. One of them is the Brachyscome multifida ‘Break of Day’, a pretty native groundcover with gorgeous lavender flowers similar to daisies.

This pretty daisy is a common native ground cover used in rockeries. It’s a hardy plant that tolerates most soil types and likes full sun, growing 20 cm high and 50cm wide. Mulching and water are beneficial and removing dead flowers encourage more growth.

Propagation from cuttings is usually 50 percent successful and they are a lovely addition to any garden.
