Pachystegia insignis

This is a beautiful subshrub in foliage & flower. The glossy, dark green leaves are thick & have edges & undersides that are white & felty. The flower buds on long stems are like drumsticks that open to become white daisies with yellow centers. This plant will eventually grow to 2’ by 2’ & is a real eye-catcher with all of its white highlights. Native to the New Zealand coast, it can be found growing on the bluffs along the ocean. Grow in full sun with excellent drainage. Give it plenty of water for it to look its best.
