Cypress Daisy-bush is an erect shrub to about a metre and a half and grows on a mixture of sand and clay; often in loose association with Ironbark (Eucalyptus tricarpa). On our coast it is not present until one gets toward the southern boundary at Southside; as well as parts of the Ironbark Basin and further southwest toward Anglesea. There is also an occurrence further inland at Bellbrae.
Foliage tends to be confined toward younger growth; particularly as the plant matures. Leaves are small, often sticky and closely appressed to the branchlets to give a Cypress-like growth habit.
Flowering occurs in early spring with white flowers that are produced en masse. It makes a striking display in coastal heathland at this time.
