These sweet, cheerful groundcovers intermingle happily as they spread out over one of our largest garden beds. Hundreds of their blooms offer up their 'daisy faces' to the sun, to the honeybees that visit them often and to me, as I walk by.
The lovely Lilac Hawkesbury River Daisy (a native groundcover).
"Blue-eyes" with silvery foliage and beautiful blue blooms.
The sweet and simple flowers of Seaside Daisy.
Each individual flower is simple and beautiful but, when planted in drifts or so they spread over a larger expanse, the impact of those single blooms is multiplied many, many times over. They are my own little field of flowers in my suburban garden bed.
Over time, these groundcovers have grown and spread out to create a carpet of pretty little flowers. They have covered and shaded the soil, kept weeds at bay, softened the edges of our concrete driveway, fed the bees and found themselves in many a homegrown posy or daisy chain crown. They are a true delight!
p.s. Here is a website list of ten Australian native groundcovers. Perhaps you might have room for one or two to run riot in your garden!
