PEMBERTONIA latisquamea was previously known as Brachyscome latisquamea.
Endemic to the Cape Range, Carnarvon and Geraldton regions of Western Australia.
Prefers a light to medium soil in an open sunny position but will tolerate some shade. Very hardy and is drought and frost resistant.
Although seed can be sown most of the year in Australia seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn in temperate climates, avoid the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 18-22°C
General note: Seeds of many natives are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Do not be too hasty to discard seed that does not germinate, seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination to occur. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they were discarded.
