Native Pigface is a hardy Australian native ground cover. Bright pink daisy flowers cover the bush throughout most of the year with the main flush in spring and summer. Is drought hardy and suitable for sandy soils and coastal positions. Prefers a full sun position and is suitable for pots. The leaves can be pickled into a preserve, and the fruit produced in late summer makes an excellent snack.
The fruit is tasty, sweet, and is somewhere between a salty kiwi with touches of melon. To eat, you tea the fruit and suck out the inner flesh.
