Brachyglottis greyi

Daisy Bush

Senecio greyi

Evergreen Perennial, Shrub, Tender Perennial

Is it a perennial, or is it a shrub? No matter, it's fantastically handsome and will make a rock-solid-tough, drought-tolerant addition to your garden—though you'll need to be zone 8 or warmer. It is a robust grower in full sun and well-drained soil. Don't be afraid to cut it back after flowering to maintain a more compact plant. Left to their own devices, they can get quite large.
