Olearia lanuginosa

Olearia lanuginosa, also known as Peninsula Daisy-Bush, is a small to medium-sized evergreen shrub native to Australia. It grows up to 1.5 metres tall and has small, thick, silver-grey leaves that are covered in soft hairs, giving it a woolly texture. During spring and summer, Olearia lanuginosa produces masses of small white daisy-like flowers with yellow centers. This plant is a great addition to coastal gardens, as it tolerates salt spray and windy conditions. It is also drought-tolerant and can handle light frost. Olearia lanuginosa is low maintenance and can be used as a screen, border, or feature plant.
