Brachyglottis (Brachyglottis compacta (Senecio))

This started off in the next-door garden, but grew through the fence (and under it) into mine! Bees love it.

The names on this never stop changing (see the ads. on the right), I think at the moment it i Brachyglottis 'Dunedin Hybrids' but maybe you know better!!

It's one of those plants from my childhood, we used to rub the 'wool' off the leaves. Ah! memories!

To be honest, it drives me scatty- it is up against the fence and grows out over my plants, so every spring I chop armfuls of branches off, I just leave the top ones for the flowers! I still call it 'Senecio' and had to think hard to come up with 'Brachyglottis'!!

Some people chop it right back, Spritz, and skip the flowers altogether. But is it one of those: 'do you or don't you' situations.

As it's in my purple/gold/white border, it can have some flowers with pleasure! THEN it's for the chop.
