Brachyglottis Hedge Plants Description
Brachyglottis 'Sunshine' is a remarkably tough but cheerful evergreen shrub with unusual grey-green foliage and bright yellow daisy-like flowers in summer and early autumn, which is where the name 'Sunshine' derives from. Think summer holidays with the best of weather! Both the leaves and new stems are covered in fuzzy white growth which has an attractive sparkly quality for year-round interest.
Being fully tolerant of colder exposed climates and growing well in coastal areas, Brachyglottis 'Sunshine' makes a great standalone garden shrub in any location. However, it makes a particularly appealing informal flowering hedge which is suited to around 1m in height, so is perfect for anyone wanting a hardy but compact evergreen flowering hedge. Plant in full sun or partial shade in a well-drained but moist soil and enjoy all the delights this little shrub will bring to your garden all year round.

Although Brachyglottis 'Sunshine' likes a sunny spot, it will also perform in light shade, and is fully hardy. It is fine in any soil other than wet soil or badly draining soil. Drought tolerant and good for windswept areas.

Brachyglottis Senecio Sunshine should be trimmed once after flowering to maintain a bushy shape - see also our entire selection of flowering hedge plants. You can prune most evergreen shrubs just before growth starts in mid-Spring.
