Chrysocephalum apiculatum (grey leafed form)

I have just been potting on some struck cuttings of three different versions of Chrysocephalum apiculatum. All have golden yellow ‘billy button’ flowers, are perennial, some are suckering, and there are a number of leaf forms.

These plants need tidying up when new growth begins at the base of the plants.

My favourites have grey/green leaves and one has distinctly grey leaves. Of course the flowers look great against these leaves. The mallee form is a small clumping plant, with smaller flowers and green leaves. It is a dainty plant compared to the brashness of the others.
