Brachyglottis x jubar   Shrub Ragwort C DD I

Brachyglottis sunshine whole Brachyglottis sunshine floret

Orginally known in nurseries as Brachyglottis "Sunshine", this is a garden plant, originally created (probably) by crossing Brachyglottis laxifolia with Brachyglottis compacta. It escapes and survives in the wild but often not far from habitation. It used to be called Senecio greyi and has escaped in England and Wales but hardly at all in Scotland or Ireland.

The name has recently changed (New Flora of the British Isles Third Edition by Clive Stace 2010) from Brachyglottis "Sunshine" to Brachyglottis x jubar.
