Silver Cushion Mountain Daisy
A cushion-forming alpine plant in the daisy and sunflower family (Asteraceae), native to high elevation grassland or bogs on the South Island of New Zealand. It forms a cushion-like subshrub or mat of tiny rosettes of short, succulent, silvery leaves. The daisy-like flowers are almost stalkless. In cultivation, it does best in a sunny spot on moist but well drained soil in a cool temperate climate but dislikes heat and humidity. Seeds may benefit from cold stratification for up to 3 months.
