Cassinia aculeata

This fast-growing, hardy, narrow-leafed, open shrub grows to 4 m high.

It produces a striking dense, domed spray of white flowers in summer.

Cassinia has aromatic foliage and is frequently used as a specimen plant in native gardens.

It is also often used for dried flower arrangements.

The seeds are wind dispersed and it is often a pioneer species after fire or other disturbance.
