We think this might be a new favourite with many gardeners - a drought-tolerant silver-green groundcover for poor dry soils. Plant it, water it until it establishes, leave it. It knits together into a dense mat as it grows, ideal for bank-binding and weed-suppressing.

Bonus yellow daisy flowers in spring and summer. Recommended by this WA water company as a low-water plant.
