Olearia x haastii
In July and August this evergreen shrub is smothered with clusters of white, daisy flowers with typical yellow centres. The leaves are glaucous and glossy, it has the feel of a mediterranean plant. This shrub also makes a fabulous, informal flowering hedge or windbreak for a sunny, well drained site. It is particularly suitable for exposed gardens as it stands up well to strong winds.
