Australian rock daisy
Also known as grass daisy. There are around 100 species within genus Brachyscome, almost all of which occur here in Australia.
Natural range for these pretty little flowers is within open forests from coasts to alpine areas of all our states, but most occur here in the east. This is a low, spreading perennial plant up to about 25 cm in height. The leaves are linear and up to 5 cm in length. The pink or mauve flower heads are about 15 - 20 mm diameter and occur on thin, leafless stalks. Flowers are seen mainly in spring but flowers can occur sporadically at other times.
Two botanical varieties are recognised.....var.angustifolia and var.heterophylla. The latter has lobed leaves in contrast to the entire leaves of var.angustifolia.
This species has been in cultivation for many years and this is 'radiant magenta'.
