Articles / Favourite / A Chrysocephalum for your garden


3 min read | by Ben Walcott, Updated 01/03/2020

 

Chrysocephalums are found all over Australia including the ACT. Most are Chrysocephalum apiculatum but this particular plant was sold as Chrysocephalum ramosissimum. There is some doubt about whether it really is a different species but this plant does have excellent characteristics. It forms rather dense mats of growth with yellow flowers that last from early spring to frost. It is a very hardy plant liking full sun and doesn’t demand too much water. It will spread which you do have to control by pulling out the new little plants but gives you more free plant material to put other places or give to friends. In the winter, they sort of die down but still have a few of the yellow flowers.
