Description:

Haplocarpha scaposa is a very hardy, fast growing, deciduous perennial plant with a basal rosette of attractive large, grey-green leaves that have white woolly undersides.

In its first season it starts to bear large yellow flowers on long stalks resembling the well-known Barberton Daisy.

It blooms from September to March (remove the old flower stems before they seed).

It attracts insects to the garden. Use as a groundcover in semi-shade or sun. It tolerates quite moist conditions and makes an attractive addition to a wetland or grassland garden. 

The white felt under the leaves can be used as tinder.

Include in a wetland or stony area of your garden. Plant in full sun or an area that only receives partial shade.
