This lil' possum is a perfect groundcover for native and wildlife gardens, especially if you don't have the space for the parent plant. Unlike mummy, which can get to 15m, this bub is barely knee-high, with brighter gold-silver flowers to lure in honey-eaters.

We love Pygmy Possum for the compact height, big flowers, wildlife-friendly nature
