“This piece is reminiscent to me of growing up in outback Western Australia (Meekatharra/Wiluna) and fields of red dirt and white paper everlasting flowers. I love that such a pretty delicate flower can grow in the wild among such harsh conditions.” Helen Ansell
Different plants of this one species grow either pink or white flowers. Common names are Rosy Sunray of Pink Paper Daisy. They are mainly found in Western Australia’s Gascoyne, Murchison, Wheatbelt, Goldfields and less frequently in the Pilbara and Interior, with some even in South Australia. Plants spring up when conditions are right, during warm sunny weeks, after germinating rain, with flowers appearing 2 to 10 weeks. Fruit appears approximately 4 weeks after flowering. Flowering generally occurs in the wild from August to November, mainly governed by location – earlier in the east and north and later in the south. In a good year they carpet the countryside. The plants prefer full sun through the dappled shade and grow well in open woodland. Grown in full shade they tend to be long and spindly. They thrive in well-drained sandy soils but are smaller when growing in heavy, clay soils.
