Conostylis Silversunrise is a grass-like Australian native ground cover with ghostly grey leaves that make a real statement. With golden button-like flowers that appear in spring and continue through into summer, it makes the perfect dry-garden companion for dark-leaved grasses and ground covers. Silversunrise is a real garden feature when planted singly or in a pot, and a real show-stopper when planted en-masse creating a drift of colour.
‘Silversunrise’ has no special requirements. It will produce great results with very low water volumes. Plant in a sunny location, in a well drained soil – it does not like to sit in a wet environment. Feed in early spring with a slow release fertiliser formulated for natives for optimum results.
