Brachyscome 'Pacific Cloud' is a hybrid native Australian daisy in the Asteraceae family. It features a dense, compact habit with masses of medium-sized, white flowers, set against mid-green foliage. It has surprisingly good heat tolerance and a long flowering period. Brachyscome are used primarily as a colourful ground cover or as a container plant. They are one of Australia’s favourite native daisies due to their versatility and beauty.

Brachyscome favour free-draining soil but are fairly tolerant of various soil types as they’re not particularly deep-rooted. They love full sun but can tolerate some shade, however, they won’t enjoy prolonged high humidity, such as in the tropics. Brachyscome are normally planted in multiples, so check the plant label to work out planting intervals. If planting in a pot or tub, use a quality potting mix.
