General Description

Billabong Moonlight rock daisy is a broad spindly perennial, often grown as an annual, that is native to southeastern Australia. The ferny, bright green leaves are adorned by single white daisy-like flowers with yellow centers from midsummer to autumn.

While rock daisy can tolerate a variety of soil conditions and types, it grows best in a moist, well-drained soil and full sun. 'Billabong Moonlight' is drought tolerant but grows a little faster with a light watering during drier periods. Rock daisy is excellent for use in hanging baskets or containers but is useful in the rock garden or as an edging.
