Billy Buttons

Genus: Cotula.

Species: Cotula hispida.

Fam: Asteraceae compositae


Soil: moist and humus rich, moderately fertile, drained soil. Does NOT like excess winter wet. (I move it into greenhouse during especially rainy periods in winter).
Full sun.
Flowers: from early spring - deadhead.
PROPAGATION: Divide rootball in spring or winter-sow in vented container or unheated greenhouse.

It is a very happy looking little thing when in flower, dew and rain lays like mercury on the foilage and it is very pleasantly soft to the touch.
