Olearia phlogopappa is a hardy shrub for well drained, moist soils in full sun or semi shade and can be very spectacular in flower. The greyish green foliage is variable over the range of the species but leaves are typically oblong or narrow elliptical in shape, and often with a dusty appearance on the upper surface. The well-displayed, daisy flower heads may be white, pink or mauve.
