Brachyglottis 'Sunshine' will bring a burst of colour to any area. With large yellow, daisy-like flowers and evergreen foliage, Senecio 'Sunshine' is a lovely informal shrub. The grey-green leaves and young stems are covered in a fuzzy, white growth that adds a soft texture. Although Branchyglottis is popularly found at the coast, it is a tough plant that can be enjoyed in nearly all planting sites.
It could be assumed that a plant called 'Sunshine' would only be suited to sunny situations, but in fact Brachyglottis 'Sunshine' also performs well in partial shade and it is fully hardy. It's good in all soils other than wet soils; is fairly drought tolerant and good for cold, windswept areas.
A low growing, compact hedge, Senecio 'Sunshine' is ideal for low, informal borders where evergreen foliage is preferred.
Grow Brachyglottis 'Sunshine' alone, for a cheerful, evergreen shrub.
