Brachyglottis 'Dunedin Hybrids' 

Family: Compositae (Asteraceae)

Origin: New Zealand

Sometimes placed in the genus Senecio.

Common shrub in gardens of Northern Ireland, especially near the coast.

Abundant yellow daisy-like flowers produced in midsummer. Leaves oval, silver-grey.

The garden plants are hybrids derived from crossing three New Zealand wild plants: Brachyglottis compacta, B. greyiand B. laxifolia, first originating in the Dunedin Botanic Garden, New Zealand. Many gardeners still refer to these garden plants as "Senecio greyi".
