Actinodium cunninghamii is a small shrub about one metre tall by 60 centimetres wide. The leaves are small and clustered tightly around the multiple stems. In spring pinkish-brown flower heads are carried on the end of each stem. The flower heads are surrounded by small bracts giving a daisy-like appearance (hence the misleading common name). Flowering is profuse.

Keep plant compact by removing spent flower heads.

Well drained sites in full to half sun are preferred.

The species is native to the south west of Western Australia.

Actinodium cunninghamii is a beautiful and unusual shrub that would add interest to rockeries and native cottage gardens.

Propagate from cuttings.
