Scaevola is suddenly fashionable. It’s a pretty plant with flowers that look like half a daisy – hence fan flowers.
In the new bed between the tank and the house, I have Aussie Winners – aemula which has larger, softer leaves and larger flowers, and some slightly smaller cheaper versions from Ridgy-Didge. They have morning sun and are in shade from about 11am.
There is one with even smaller leaves and flowers on the slope at the front that came from a native nursery at a garden show.
Attracts native bees and birds
Kumbartcho offer 3 – I will ask them which would be best for the verge.
- Scaevola aemula (Fairy Fan Flower)
- Scaevola albida (Small-Fruited Fan Flower)
Scaevola calendulacea (Dune Fan Flower)
