An erect herb growing to 50 cm in height with a similar spread with narrow leaves 65mm long and 8 mm wide.
Yellow-green flower heads occur from March to November in its native range. Prefers a dry situation and is suitable for use in containers.
Occurs naturally in arid inland areas of all Australian mainland states. Adaptable to most soil types but prefers an open dry sunny position, 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 for this species.
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.
