Chrysocephalum apiculatum


Chrysocephalum apiculatum also goes by the cutest name - Yellow Buttons. It is a short living (2-5 years) perennial herb native to Australia. This little Yellow Buttons has soft silvery-grey foliage with papery yellow button flowers that appear from spring to autumn. It is an easy-going groundcover that is low maintenance and very cute.
