BRACHYGLOTTIS

Commonly known as (formerly Senecio), Shrubby ragwort

You might find that your favourite Senecio has been transposed to this unflatteringly named genus.

Brachyglottis 'Sunshine' just doesn't have the alliterative allure of Senecio 'Sunshine'. However, the improvement, the more compact 'Walberton's Silver Dormouse', when more widely known should become a favourite.

Genus of about 30 species of evergreen trees and shrubs, herbaceous perennials and climbers from New Zealand and Tasmania.

Includes several shrubby species once included in Senecio.

They thrive in areas of hot sun, poor soils and along the coast.
