Brachyglottis are native to much of Australia and Tasmania. Brachyglottis (dunedin group) Sunshine was named by Roy Lancaster and is probably a cross between B. lacifolia and B. compacta. This small, evergreen shrub was awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit. Renown for it's attractive, hairy, silver grey, evergreen, foliage and abundant, single, yellow flowers in June and July. Brachyglottis Sunshine is super tolerant of harsh windy conditions and dry locations. Easy to grow in a full sun location in all but heavy soils. Plant in a free draining border or grow in a pot or other container. When growing in a pot or other container, use a good John Innes No.2 compost to which 20% by volume of horticultural grit has been added to improve drainage. Ensure you feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmoscote pro 8-9 month applied in the early spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires.
