As autumn starts in Canberra, our paper daisies are coming to an end.
The highlight of our recently planted front garden, these little flowers bring me joy every day.
They are tough and hardy, but so delicate at the same time. The bracts (not petals!) are waxy to touch, and sharp on the pointy ends.
Botanical name is Xerochrysum bracteatum and further information is available here .
I’ll be sad to see them go as winter approaches, but I’m already looking forward to their flowering next summer.
