Euryops or Golden Daisy bush is an evergreen shrub on the asteraceaes family, with very branchy and dense foliage.
Euryops blooms almost all the year although in very warm areas it will stop during the summer.
Hardy shrub which can tolerate a certain grade of salt in the water, dry and por soils and wind, but obviously the plant will thrive and grow much nicer if we provide specific cares, such as a sunny location, with a good drainage system.
Add fertiliser during spring and the fall to have a bushier plant, and more and long lasting flowers. Also pinch off the wilted flowers to stimulate new ones.
Regarding pruning better trim the plant during summer when it has less flowers or even nonexistent. May Golden Daisy be an old plant prune it strongly, if not give sligh cutting to eliminate leaves and dry stems or wilted flowers.
The most well known Euryops are:
Euryops Pectinatus: grey foliage bush, which can reach up o 1.50mtrs high, although normally we keep it much lower.
Euryops Chrysanthemoides: very similar to E. Pectinatus, but green foliage.
