Conostylis ‘Silversunrise’ is a grass-like Australian native ground cover with ghostly grey leaves that make a real statement. With golden button-like flowers that appear in spring and continue through into summer, it makes the perfect dry-garden companion for dark-leaved grasses and ground covers. ‘Silversunrise’ is a real garden feature when planted singly or in a pot, and a real show-stopper when planted en-masse creating a drift of colour.

‘Silversunrise’ is a very low maintenance, frost hardy and dry tolerant variety that’s well suited to any native style garden or one requiring little maintenance. Combines well with soft grasses, pastel flowering ground covers and native shrubs.

'Silversunrise' has no special requirements. It will produce great results with very low water volumes. Plant in a sunny location, in a well drained soil - it does not like to sit in a wet environment. Feed in early spring with a slow release fertiliser formulated for natives for optimum results.

  • Plant alongside varieties with darker foliage for contrast
  • Plant around the base of a garden sculpture or feature
  • Beautiful container plant
  • Hardy borders and edging
  • Waterwise gardens - very dry tolerant
  • Ideal for coastal locations
