Athanasia crithmifolia, also known as samphire-leaf athanasia, is a fast-growing herbaceous shrub with grey-green foliage and bright yellow flower-heads. It is easy to grow, water-wise, and can be a bit weedy. This dense, leafy shrub, 1.5–2.0 m tall, is a good bee plant and useful for water-wise or ‘wild’ areas in gardens, as it largely looks after itself. It is also a useful pioneer species.
