Star of the Garden – February

Senecio greyii ‘Sunshine’  (Brachyglottis)

I couldn’t resist putting this plant in.  I think this shrub is great.  It gives lovely soft, evergreen structure to the winter garden, some people say it is common, true. It is used a lot, but that is only because it is a V.F.M. plant (value for Money) plant. It is easy to grow, nuclear proof and looks great too with pretty yellow flowers that bees like in summer.  Every spring we cut this back to contain it or it will collapse over the paths by mid summer.  It also keeps the foliage young and fresh.  I caught this last month after it had been visited by Jack Frost.
